Beat the 3.Nd2 Variation in the French Defense (Database+PDF)

french defence part 1GM Mihail Marin, a renowned expert on the French Defense, will provide you with an opening repertoire for Black based on 3…c5 against the 3.Nd2 Variation (French Tarrasch), one of White’s most frequently used systems in this chess opening.

The author relies on his extensive experience with the isolated queen’s pawn (or Isolani) to guide you through the intricacies of arguably the most important pawn structure in chess.

Marin explains why he prefers 4…exd5 (which leads to the above-mentioned pawn structure) over the fashionable 4…Qxd5. It offers an “early strategic plot in the center” which requires an understanding of positional subtleties first and foremost, while memorization of concrete and forced opening lines takes the back seat.

After that, GM Mihail Marin goes over 20+ different lines and sidelines to help you develop a flawless repertoire against the French Tarrasch.
