French Classical - 2nd hand
Book condition: very good
The French Classical (1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 Nf6) leads to the type of dynamic, unbalanced positions which appeal to grandmaster and club player alike. Black is prepared to concede space in the centre with a view to striking back at his opponent at the earliest opportunity. The recent games of Nigel Short, Alexei Shirov, Victor Korchnoi and Alexander Morozevich, among others, have demonstrated that he has every chance of successfully executing this strategy and seizing the initiative. This book considers every important variation, with particular emphasis on those that readers are likely to encounter in their own games.
