Another day, another video on the French from International Master Thomas Rendle! Here we see a continuation on the variations given after 3...Nc6 with 5.e5 and 5.Bd3 by white. Thomas reveals several hidden gems inherit to these "slightly awkward and original" French positions: Black's need to play for ...f6 early after Ne4; Queenside shots like ...Na4 after 0-0-0 by white; and the equalizing break of ...e5. French Players, you are welcome!
