The Complete French Advance (K-5373)

K-5373

New product

The Advance Variation is the most ambitious way to meet the solid French Defence. Its popularity among club players is not difficult to understand: by advancing the e-pawn to e5 on the third move, White not only gains space but also blocks in Black’s c8-bishop and hampers Black’s kingside development by taking away the f6-square.
