  • Destroying The French

    The French Defense is really an interesting opening.  Some players swear by it as black and some players swear they can refute it as white.  The game below is a nice example of the latter. I was privileged to play a rather strong opponent in the... | Read More


    • The Scotch/Spanish Endgame
