GM Yevseev suggests a new concept of combating the French. White plays 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 and then he deploys his pieces according to the scheme Ngf3, Bd3, c3, 00, against almost anything that Black may play. This will usually lead to exchanges in the centre and the appearance of an isolated queens pawn for White. Now for details. The book comprises three parts. Part 1 chapters 1 to 3, covers Rubinstein's 3...dxe4, while part 2 chapters 4 to 9, is a hodgepodge of Tarrasch sidelines and normal lines where White should avoid the isolated queen pawn approach. Finally, part 3 treats different versions of the isolated queen pawn formation arising from the 3...Nf6, 3...c5 and 3...a6 lines. Also, a look at 3 Be7 lines. A great way for the club player or master to play against the French. Softback 384 pages. Dimensions: 14.5 x 1.8 x 21.5 cm.
