Understanding Middlegame Strategies Vol.9: French – Tarrasch
by Ivan Sokolov
In the Tarrasch variation, White seems to be doing great, but initial evaluations can be deceptive and Black certainly has trumps, creating complicated and fascinating positions. "The French´s household-name proponent is the legendary Victor Kortschnoj - arguably the best player to have never become world champion - so naturally, I have included a number of his games." He played these positions in two of his World Championship matches in 1978 & 1981 against Anatoly Karpov - who many consider to be the most precise player against isolated pawns - not losing a single game. French middlegames are very rich and tricky to master, but with this video course you will gain a better positional understanding and learn precise strategic planning.
