The French - Tarrasch Variation 3...-Nf6

In this article I want to look at "Ngf3 systems" of the French- Tarrasch Variation,( the "Universal System" ) and I would like to explore an interesting and rare setup.

Black has many alternatives to the seventh move and can directly play on the centre with the uncommon idea 7....-f6 !?


Two days ago, an interesting novelty was played in the game :

WGM Congiu , M. VS  IM Bruno, F.  ( Forni di Sopra- Italy)

Position before: 12....-Ndxe5!N: phpxa8fW0.jpeg

I added some interesting analyses on the subject.

Have fun and enjoy them!
