Fit for the French, by Viktor Bologan
Viktor Bologan: Fit for the French
On this Fritz Trainer DVD Viktor Bologan presents his repertoire against the French Defense. The only way to combat this opening is to choose an aggressive plan, and according to Bologan the best such plan starts with 3.Nc3. The Moldavian Grandmaster has had this continuation in his armoury for 20 years, since he was initiated into the secrets of the French by the top trainer Zigurds Lanka -and he has been extremely successful with it. Bologan goes on to recommend only the main lines and once again his choice falls on the most aggressive ones, such as, for example, Qd1-g4 in the Winawer lines.
