Susan Polgar: Mastering the French Defense (Part 1) - Chess Opening Video DVD
Mastering the French (Part 1)
On this 3 Part DVD series Susan Polgar will share with you her experiences, exciting battles, and won games from the first opening she ever learned at the early age of 4.
Although the French can be complex, the main benefit is there are not many long and forceful lines compared to other openings. Susan will teach you the key to learning the French, to understand the pawn strategies, tactical motifs and basic plans.
So join Susan as well as some of world's elite Grandmasters such as Victor Korchnoi, Nigel Short and Alexander Morozevich in playing this fun and exciting opening defense.
