In today’s video lesson, we’ll learn how to defeat one of the solid chess openings for Black, the French Defense. It is the Two Knights variation, which happens after the following moves: 1.e4 e6 2.Nf3 d5 3.Nc3.

While moving away from the mainline (2.d4), you will get your opponents out of their opening preparation and get ahead in the opening stage. Watch the video lesson and learn how to play against the most common responses; 3…dxe4, 3…Nf6, and 3…d4.

You can find the PGN of these opening variations below:
