Bundle: Beating the French Defense (Parts 1-3) - Chess Opening Software on DVD
Beating the French Defense, Volumes 1-3
In his DVD series on the French Defense, Rustam Kasimdzhanov presents a promising White repertoire based upon 3.Nc3. In this first Beating the French DVD, GM Kasimdzhanov examines positions following 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5. Then the second DVD continues with the Classical, or Steinitz, lines of the French. Finally, the third DVD examines the Burn, or Rubinstein Variation, with a Black exchange in the center.
In 13 video lessons the author shows how White can use the space advantage given by the pawn on e5 to get an attack on the Black King or a better endgame. Kasimdzhanov packs this 3.5 hour DVD with valuable information concerning the important attacking ideas, maneuvers, and plans seen in this variation.
