The French Defense remains one of the most popular strategies to use against White King's pawn opening; top class grandmasters such as Korchnoi, Morozevich, Bareev, and Short continue to practice it with success. Grandmaster Lev Psakhis, a former Soviet champion who has written extensively on this gambit, now shows how to counter it. In the second volume of his three-part series on the French Defense, he covers the aggressive 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 e5 tactic, as well as a number of other "Anti-French" lines, including the King's Indian Attack and Exchange variations. A wealth of illustrated games as well as up-to-date theory also provide valuable instruction that will help chess players master these winning techniques.
