Explaining top Grandmaster games, Kasimdzhanov shows how White can fight for the advantage.
In 11 video lessons he reveals the most important strategies and plans, analyzing both sharp attacking performances and patiently won endgames. Studying Kasimdzhanov's commentaries will help you to master the French and improve your chess understanding in general.
