The French Defense is a highly reliable response to 1 e4 which is popular at all levels. With the first two moves, Black creates a solid foundation in the center and seeks to put pressure on White’s position in the early middlegame. In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala explains the basic ideas in the French and examines the important variations. The key ideas are emphasized with notes, tips and warnings and the reader’s understanding is tested with frequent exercises. This book tells you everything you need to know in order to take your first steps with the French Defense.

 

First Steps is a new opening series and is ideal for improving players who want simple and straightforward explanations. First Steps emphasizes:

 

* the basic principles

* the basic strategies

* the key tricks and traps

 

First Steps books are based around carefully selected instructive games which demonstrate exactly what both sides are trying to achieve. There is enough theory to enable the improving player to get to grips with the opening without feeling overwhelmed. If you want to take up a new opening, First Steps is the ideal place to start.
