Dejan Antic & Branimir Maksimovic
A Complete Guide for Black
Grandmaster Dejan Antic and International Master Branimir Maksimovic have written a book that offers an up-to-date repertoire for Black in the French Defence, one of the most popular chess openings.
After two years of work the authors have produced a book which, as well as explaining the basic strategies of the French, introduces the reader to many theoretical novelties and more complex plans which can be used to fight for the initiative.
Grandmaster Antic and International Master Maksimovic have researched new ideas for Black, both in main-line systems and in sidelines, which can be used as surprise weapons against even well prepared opponents.
The book considers responses to all White's major options including the King's Indian Attack, Exchange Variation, Advance System, Tarrasch Variation and 3.Nc3, Steintiz and MacCutcheon Variations.
Dejan Antic is a Serbian Grandmaster now living in Greece. Branimir Maksimovic is a Serbian International Master who has played the French Defence all his life and is well acquainted with the subtleties of the opening.
