Chess Tactics in The French Defense – GM Mihail Marin

If you want to know an opening, you should be familiar with its typical positional ideas and remember the most important theoretical lines. But this is not enough. Every opening has its own stock of tactical motifs. Therefore, you also have to know the typical tactical patterns which frequently occur in your opening.

GM Mihail Marin’s course on the essential patterns in the French Defense gives you a complete understanding of typical tactical and strategic patterns for both sides.

The French Defense is one of the most trusted openings in chess, popular at all levels from beginners to strong grandmasters. It is a strategically and dynamically complex opening full of rich possibilities. Both sides have a multitude of tactical shots and ideas at their disposal thanks to the different asymmetrical pawn structures and imbalances which occur from the different variations.

It is a perfect opening for players who prefer to understand key strategical and tactical ideas rather than memorize an endless amount of theoretical variations.
