French Defense - illustrative box

French Defense for Black

A complete defense for Black against 1.e4, the French Defense is very solid, strategic and, in the meanwhile, very poisonous. After studying this book, you will be more comfortable playing Black, even against much stronger opponents than you.

Closed Sicilian - illustrative box

Closed Sicilian for White

A strong system to meet the Sicilian with the white pieces, the Closed Sicilian is more cerebral, strategic, but also spectacular with strong attacks. It takes you much less to learn than the Open Sicilian and the evaluation of its variations does not change over night.
