i look forward to your videos on the french, it kinda like christmas day opening a present....excellent stuff
..and after Qxb5 white would not be very happy :)
12:28 - Wouldn't a6 be a blunder? Nb4 would be discovered check with an attack on the queen; or am I missing something?

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!

IM Thomas Rendle
Thomas learned chess at the age of 5 and was immediately hooked. In 1999 he won the United Kingdom Schools Chess Challenge ahead of 35,000 other competitors and remins the youngest ever winner of the event. Thomas became an International Master in 2006 and got a GM norm at the 2007 Gibtelecom Masters where he finished 5th (along with Michael Adams and Ivan Sokolov). Thomas is now a regular chess coach with England at the World and European Youth Championships.
