Bulletproof

If you contact me later I will give a more comprehensive view. I looked at the Korchnoi game in the iintro, which gives an excellent idea of how the French can work. I also looked at the first chapter on the exchange. which I found stunning, especially the response to the white pin on g5. I would have liked to have seen more on this though.

Not for me

It's ok but I find the presentation far too complicated. I just want a more straight forward guide with a series of recommendations written for an average club player.

Bulletproff French Defence (Th

Bulletproff French Defence (The Libiszewski Method) I downloaded this video series with a bit of nervous anticipation. I have been playing the French at almost every occasion for the past 10 years and had played it sporadically the previous 30. This was a new addition to my library on the French from a whole new source in GM Libizewski. The download come in 5 separate sections, roughly corresponding to the common lines of the French: Exchange, Advance, Tarrasch, Steinitz and the Classical (the Winawer is mentioned but, not covered.) The Kings Indian Attack and some miscellaneous lines are covered near the end of the 5th section. I encountered no issue with the download itself. The material in the videos was very interesting. GM Libiszewski makes some suggestions that are less common lines. An example and one that I appreciated, was to recommend and analyze the variation of the Tarrasch 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 Nf6 4.e5 Nfd7 5.Bd3 c5 6.c3 Nc6 7.Ne2 cxd4 8.cxd4 f6 9.exf6 Qxf6!? I had puttered around with this line in blitz and now had some excellent analysis from a GM. There were other non-main line variation recommended that I enjoyed a lot. The analysis of the material had great value plus the Libiszewski explains why he has certain tendencies to favor types of positions over other. Notably, he explains that he rarely likes pushing c5-c4 without a very good reason and when he does suggest that structure he explains why. This clarity of reason helps to make the listener more comfortable with his suggestions. I also enjoyed the extra example games that came along. These work to make clear the sequence of moves and how one choice might have been made over another. These little things help a lot. There are a few things you should be aware of if you are interested in this series. First, I was surprised that the coverage of some themes was inconsistent. A line he mentions 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 Nf6 4.e5 Nfd7 5.f4 c5 6.Ngf3 cxd4 7.Nxd4 is passed over with the suggestion that the wrong knight has captured on d4 and this makes Black’s game easier. I expected mention of the standard 7…Nxe5 7.fxe5 Qh4+ tactic. This same kind of tactic is presented later in a different line. Another one is the Albin Chatard Alekhine line 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7 5.e5 Nfd7 6.h4 Nc6 7.Qd2 h5 8.Bxe7 Qxe7 9.Rh3 Nb6 10.Rg3 f6 11.exf6 gxf6 12.0-0-0 Bd7 13.Rg6 0-0-0 14.Rxh6 Rxh6 15.Qxh6 e5 “with compensation” end of analysis. I was a bit surprised as the d5 **** appears to be an issue? Checking a bit it appears that after 16.dxe5 fxe5 17.Nxd5 Nxd5 18.Rxd5 Qf7 Black will have enough play against a2 and f2. The point is that in other lines where White has a possible motif to sacrifice on h7 the analysis is more specific and detailed. These are minor points but, the player at home looking at this for the first time is left to wonder if they are missing something obvious to the GM or did the GM pass over this without comment due to time constraints? I feel these are not the kinds of questions that the listener should be asking. Second, the sound quality got worse towards the end. Chapter 41 sounded like a fish bowl to me. Small matter worth noting. As for GM Libiszewski’s accent, the only trouble I had was with some names. This was easily dealt with by addressing the pgn file. Final bit was that a couple of the chapters were misnamed… Chapter 40 was titled as classical_variation_main_line which was the same name as chapter 39, so I figured it was additional material. No, Chapter 40 was various second move deviations. I am very happy that I have this addition to my French defense collection and would recommend it to most anyone with a little ambition and time. The only thing is to remember to think for yourself.
