The French Defense is mostly a counterattacking weapon, but from time to time you find games where White doesn't even have time to start the attack and is Black who comes first.

In this game played in Madrid between GMs Arribas and Gleizerov (a true specialist in the French), a weak move by White is leveraged by the Russian GM to launch an all-out attack that brings back the point. Enjoy it!
