When Black replies to the double move of White’s king’s pawn with 1...e6 we have the French Defence. Its name goes back to a correspondence match between the cities of London and Paris in 1834, in which the French made successful use of the move 1...e6. In the 19th century the move was the most important alternative for Black to 1...e5 and even nowadays it still occupies third place in the ranking of the most popular replies to 1.e4 after the Sicilian and 1...e5.=> More products: French Defence
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.
