This French Defence DVD is a complete attacking opening repertoire for black after 1.e4 e6. GM Nick Pert has played the French defence his whole life and provides all his la test and most up to date analysis crammed into 1 DVD. Nick has spent thousands of hourss tudying the best French lines, and he explains the pick of the bunch for the cost of a DVD. It almost seems like daylight robbery! In addition to the usual video explanations of the French there are some interactive clips where the viewer is tested on a r ange of theo - retical questions and tactics arising from French Defence games.

I was quite impressed with the thorough, high quality presentation by GM Nick Pert, and definitely see myself playing his recommended repertoire in my next tournaments as well as online. They look dynamic and competitive, and his detailed explanations left me feeling a more knowledgeable player. It is worth adding that the DVD is labeled as ‘expert knowledge’, which is just to say that a player rated 1700 or more will benefit the most from it. I heartily recommend it for anyone interested in playing the French, or seeking something new to revitalize their repertoire.
