Item description for Flexible French: Strategic Explanations & Surprise Weapons for Dynamic Players by Viktor Moskalenko...

The Flexible French is a revolutionary repertoire book for both Black and White. Viktor Moskalenko presents a wealth of original and dynamic options in every main line, proving that the French is a very lively and intriguing defence. The Ukrainian grandmasters analysis is high-level, yet his touch is light and fresh, and the book sparkles with original ideas. In his own inimitable style, Moskalenko gives the reader new gusto for the French. This extremely accessible book rounds off with seven relatively unknown weapons, early deviations with which you may surprise your opponent as Black or as White! Viktor Moskalenko (1960) is an International Grandmaster, a successful author and a wellknown chess coach who has worked with Vasily Ivanchuk. The former Ukrainian champion remains a very active player and has won many tournaments in Spain, his new home country.

Reviews - What do customers think about Flexible French: Strategic Explanations & Surprise Weapons for Dynamic Players?

A wonderful book  May 15, 2009
I have a lot of books about the French Defence, but this is by far the best of all. Moskalenko gives you several options and does an excellent review of all of them. You will not need any thing more to improve your French
A Pleasure to Read!  Jan 30, 2009
I found this to be an entertaining and informative read! I could tell that the author is a true lover of the French Defense. The only other book on the French that compares with this, is Wolfgang Uhlmann's book. If you cherish the French Defense, get both of these!
Great book for the Francophile  Oct 25, 2008
Having purchased and thoroughly enjoyed the author's earlier book on the Budapest Gambit I eagerly anticipated Moskalenko's work on the French. This book has the same engaging literary style with the addition of many games from the author's own practice (some as current as 2008). This is not a repetoire book along the lines of "see variation A4b1" but Moskalenko does a very good job of offering more than one option against all the major White choices (Advance, Tarrasch, Classical) plus coverage of many minor systems (KIA, Wing Gambit, Exchange, Anti-Winawer, etc.). Please note, you will not find the main line Winawer Poisoned Pawn (tG, imho). Instead there is material on 4...b6, 4...c5 5 a3 Bxc3+ 6 bc Qa5 and 6...Qc7. While written from the perspective of a long time devotee of the French the author also includes suggestions and improvements for White, plenty of White victories in illustrative games, and an interesting attacking system for White in the Classical/Two Knights. I was pleased to note that the bibliography includes recent works by Sveshnikov, Watson, and Psakhis.
