Understanding Middlegame Strategies Vol.9 - French - Tarrasch

In the Tarrasch variation, White seems to be doing great, but initial evaluations can be deceptive and Black certainly has trumps, creating complicated and fascinating positions.

“The French´s household-name proponent is the legendary Victor Kortschnoj - arguably the best player to have never become world champion - so naturally, I have included a number of his games.” He played these positions in two of his World Championship matches in 1978 & 1981 against Anatoly Karpov - who many consider to be the most precise player against isolated pawns - not losing a single game. French middlegames are very rich and tricky to master, but with this video course you will gain a better positional understanding and learn precise strategic planning.
