The French Tarrasch: A Repertoire for White – IM Lawrence Trent
IM Lawrence Trent provides a complete repertoire for White against the French Defence with the Tarrasch variation.
With 3.Nd2, as opposed to 3.Nc3, White keeps his pawn structure intact and retains the option of supporting d4 with c2-c3. This positionally sound choice allows White to develop with minimal interference from Black and prepare his attack.
In this 5h 38m course, IM Lawrence Trent, a veteran French Tarrasch player, demonstrates the key ideas and opportunities for White attacks on the Kingside, Queenside and even some early sacrifices in the center.
Covering all the main lines, sidelines and offbeat moves with powerful recommendations for each, Lawrence Trent ensures you have a professional standard French Tarrasch repertoire.
