Play the French (2nd Edition, Cadogan Chess) - 2nd hand
2nd-hand in fine condition. Figurine algebraic notation.
This fully revised edition of John Watson’s classic Play the French provides a complete repertoire for Black in the French Defence, one of the most complex and dynamic chess openings. Unlike most repertoire books, it offers the reader a choice of two and sometimes three systems in every main variation. Watson places particular emphasis on developing a proper understanding of typical positions, which is essential any newcomer to the French, while more experienced French players will find the material rich in original analysis and suggestions for experimentation.
The original edition of Play the French was one of the more influential openings books of the 1980s, and has become a standard text for masters and club players alike. In this fully revised edition, International Master John Watson brings his analyses up-to-date, taking into account the thousands of grandmaster games played in the past decade. This book will take French players into the twenty-first century.
