      E-DVD FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 150 - White Repertoire Against The French, Caro-Kann, and Alekhine
      Catalog Code: E-DVD0150FX

      Volume Three completes Martin's new "Winning Repertoire Series for White - 1.e4", which outlines a complete repertoire system for the first player, built around the King's Pawn opening. Here IM Martin demonstrates an easy to learn repertoire against the French, Caro-Kann and Alekhine Defense. After 1.e4 e6 we continue 2.d4 d5 3.exd5, having mastered the Exchange Variation; if 1.e4 c6 then 2.Nc3 d5 3.Nf3 (the Two Knights) and 1.e4 Nf6 meets the solid 2.e5 Nd5 3.d4 d6 4.Be2 with a position of iron.

      Strategic Ideas & Powerful Weapons
      Catalog Code: B0157NIC

      The Even More Flexible French has largely the same structure as its predecessor, but the content is fully up-to-date on the latest theory. Moskalenko has found hundreds of improvements, alternatives, new ideas and fresh weapons that will delight and surprise the reader. The book contains a more or less complete French repertoire for Black. Yet Moskalenko also presents quite a few weapons and opportunities for White. The Ukrainian Grandmaster’s analysis is, as before, high-level, his touch has remained light and fresh.

      Fighting the French
      A New Concept
      Catalog Code: B0074EU

      Nowadays the French Defence 1...e6 is one of the most popular openings in response to 1.e4. I'd like to suggest a new concept of combating it. White plays 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 and then deploys his pieces according to the scheme Ngf3, Bd3, c3, 0-0, against almost anything that Black may play. This will usually lead to exchanges in the centre and the appearance of an isolated queen's pawn for White.

      The widely-played Winawer Variation has been called 'the jewel in the crown of the French Defence'. It is easy to see why. This is an opening for players who love a real fight. Black immediately attacks White's centre and the resulting positional dynamics offer chances to both sides.

Instead of travelling down well-trodden and analyzed paths, Watson concentrates on fresh or little-explored variations of the French, selecting a wealth of "dangerous" options for both colours. Whether playing White or Black, a study of this book will leave you confident and fully-armed, and your opponents running for cover!
