The <strong>French Defense</strong> is one of the most reliable chess openings against 1 e4.

The solid central pawn chain protects Black’s king and provides the basis for counter-attacks on both wings.

On this DVD, Grandmaster Daniel King offers you a repertoire for Black with the French.

Based on around ten stem games, all White’s major lines against the French are covered.

The French Defence is one of the most flexible chess openings. This DVD explores different systems so that you can always keep your opponent guessing as to your choice.

Complete games are discussed so that one gains an idea about typical strategies for both sides. More than that, these model games provide inspiration to play the chess opening.
