A lot of good ideas in a short amount of time, helpful, instructive - just plain GOOD! TNX.
Enjoy coming back to watch this video from time to time to glean from your superlative teaching points!! Many thanks!!!!
Thanks Tatev, for the thematic lines on the French Exchange. I love all your French videos, those videos give a lot of information. I can't wait for part 2, and congrats for your third IM norm!
Nice video Tatev - Thanks
just what I need as an otb player
I like your voice
Great video. You do a wonderful job at providing positional and thematic insights.
THANK YOU! It is very helpful! I have been "annoyed" by the boring-ness of the french for a while. Never knew any theory. Finally can play more accurately against in while playing online!
Thank you so much! It's amazing how often I get the exchange as a french player so this is super valuable!
Gregory Kaidanov also made a great video on French exchange were white plays Nf3 on move 4 wich got me playing it, I hope you will give added insight on it. Keep it up!
[COMMENT DELETED] EDIT: Sorry, I got into a redirect loop and posted twice by mistake.
I think your videos are setting a new standard with their information packed no nonsense style. Thank you.
pourquoi pas en français???
very interesting, thanks!
by WGM Tatev Abrahamyan
Nothing much to know in the Exchange Variation, right? Wrong. Watch French aficionado WGM Tatev Abrahmyan (who just secured a third IM norm) show you the intricate maneuvering required of the deceptive opening. White might think he's getting a simple game, but actually the art of the trade and subtleties in pawn structure are in full force. Don't assume the game will peter out into a draw!
