The French Defence is coming back to fashion again! One of the leaders in the 2020 Candidates tournament, Ian Nepomniachtchi, successfully staked his chances on it. Lately the World Champion himself also embraced the French several times. A great expert in this opening is the last challenger for the world title Fabiano Caruana. The French became a real arena of the battle of the engines - neural network genius Leela was confidently repelling the attacks of it's powerful rivals.

The author's two volume repertoire for Black in the French allows Black to obtain fresh creative positions without having to compete with deep knowledge in well trodden paths. The theoretical material is based on the author's tournament practice, and passed the test at Grandmaster level during the writing of the book.

Volume 2 focuses on the Advance (3.e5, c5;) and Winawer (3.Nc3, Bb4;) systems. In the Winawer Kryakvin devotes three chapters to 5..Ba5; and four chapters on 5..Bxc3+; with Black playing 6..Qa5; taking immediate aim at Whte's queenside weaknesses.

Published 2020, softback, 260 pages.
