A Surprise French Defense

Round 3 of the South Carolina Championship. Playing against the Veresov Attack, after 1.d4 e6 2.Nc3 d5 Black is often surprised to find himself playing the Black side of a French Defense. This is the case in my game against a highly rated NC player.

Lesson learned: I need to study the French Defense variations that may occur in the Veresov Attack. In "A Ferocious Opening Repertoire", Cyrus Lakdawala said "In 2010, so far I have played nine Veresovs over the board and six of them turned into French ... Nf6 lines!"
