Many of the variants of each of these openings are recognized by unique names. A big French problem is that she has almost too many possible openings. The price of guessing wrong is often grim. In general, a valid French strategy is to get Spain and Portugal in the opening, even at the price of losing a home center. For France, such a loss is frequently only temporary if her diplomacy is sharp.
