WGM Abrahamyan continues to divulge all of her French secrets! Today she expands upon her great series by showing the "annoying" Tarrasch - 3. Nd2. She focuses on the 3...Be7 system, where White has a few satisfactory replies including clarifying the center right away with 4. e5. Many pawn structures are possible, and Abrahamyan shows how the hanging pawns can give Black an edge.
