I used the feature for first time and it let at the diagrams a blank space between the game and a toolbar to make moves and so:

Evaluation of this alternative to French exchange lines

This is how it looks my text on the textarea:

I am a french player at both sides. I don't like exchange lines. I found them drawish positions and my brain uses to get bored and I finish frequently being the side that makes a decissive mistake.

I have never played it at a 90+30 federated games, and I know the engine says this is not good at all. Anyhow I have played c5 with black several times on blitz, and I still do it.

The level of the players I play against rounds the range 1650-1900. There are some tricks if white don't plays well. Sometimes, specialy for the players with lower rating. d4 or d5 pawns get pinned and become a trouble.

Should I stop playing it?

rnbqkbnr/pp3ppp/4p3/2pP4/3P4/8/PPP2PPP/RNBQKBNR w KQkq c6 0 4

I think I should have played this following line some dozens of times, having good results with black at blitz at a level 1650-1800.

[FEN ""]
[Date "2018.07.29"]
[Round "-"]
[White "?"]
[Black "?"]
[Result "*"]

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 c5 4. dxe6 Bxe6 5. Bb5+ Nc6 6. Nf3 Qa5+ 7. Nc3 O-O-O *

Less frequent, but sometimes they fall, I recover the pawn, and there is missdevelopment. eg:

[FEN ""]
[Date "2018.07.29"]
[Round "-"]
[White "?"]
[Black "?"]
[Result "*"]

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 c5 4. dxc5 Bxc5 5. dxe6 Bxf2+ 6. Ke2 Qxd1+ 7. Kxd1 
Bxe6 *

At some of the games I played -note it is blitz- they have clear they wanted an exchange and they just do not try to profit white's advantages. Then I like to have my pawn at c5 and accept the exchange and leave the gambit.

[FEN ""]
[Date "2018.07.29"]
[Round "-"]
[White "?"]
[Black "?"]
[Result "*"]

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 c5 4. Nf3 exd5 *

Thanks in advance.
