International Master Thomas Rendle continues his video series on the recent and topical variations of the French Defense. As he transitions into one of the more popular sidelines for black (3...Nc6) -- he displays an instructive win by Morozevich against fellow Super-GM, Peter Leko. The practical value of playing a "surprise weapon" is displayed in this game, when Leko chooses an inferior line. Watch as Moro' uses activity to punish his opponent!
