Grasso-Stoyko, Roselle CC at Kenilworth CC 2005

Black's plan after 14.Bc2.


The game Grasso-Stoyko, Roselle CC at Kenilworth CC 2005, was a great example of how to liberate the "French Bishop" in the Tarrasch Variation. I was so impressed by the plan that I put together an introduction to the system and now think he should give a second series of lectures on the French Defense once he finishes with his first series on the 1.d4 d5 Black Repertoire on Thursday night from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the Kenilworth Chess Club.

You can find this Anti-Tarrasch repertoire online in java applet or you can download the PGN file to help you analyze on your own.

What a remarkable website! Thanks so much for providing things like Stoyko's QGD lecture notes, and I'm looking forward to seeing more French Defence notes if you talk him into doing the lectures.
