Incl. Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

The French Defence is an opening with a marked strategic character, but it also offers rich tactical possibilities to both sides. This video course is aimed as a tactical guide for Black, featuring the most typical combinations for the French structures. The reader is also invited to find combinations delivered by White, in order to become aware of the possible dangers. For virtually all types of white combinations, the video course features symmetrical equivalents for Black, but also tests how Black can withstand the White aggression.

41 Games are presented with more than 100 questions to solve. Themes: Tactics involving the h7/2-. g7/2- and f7/2-pawn, the pawn break f4-f5, the counter move g7-g5.
