Viacheslav Eingorn & Valentin Bogdanov
Chess Explained books provide an understanding of an opening and the middlegames to which it leads, enabling you to find the right moves and plans in your own games. It is as if you were sitting at the board with a chess coach answering your questions about the plans for both sides, the ideas behind particular moves, and what specific knowledge you need to have.
In this book the authors show how to handle some of the main lines of the French, including the Winawer 7.Nf3 and 7.Qg4, the Tarrasch with 3..c5; and 3..Nf6; the Advance Variation, the Burn and Rubinstein Systems and the Classical System. Key strategies and tactics are illustrated with the help of 25 annotated games with both sides' possibilities being equally examined. An ideal introduction to the French for club players hoping to take up the opening.
