Présentation de l'éditeur

The wait is over. Finally it’s here... the much anticipated 4th edition of John Watson’s Play the French – the must-have book for all French Defence players for over 20 years!

Watson’s highly acclaimed work presents a repertoire for Black in the French Defence against all of White’s recognized options. Just as in previous editions, Watson often arms the reader with not just one, but a choice of two or sometimes even three choices against the main lines. He also provides a thorough grounding on the positional and tactical aspects of the opening, and outlines the typical plans for both White and Black. Watson is renowned for his creativity and expertise in the opening, and once again this edition features an abundance of innovative ideas for Black. Watson also provides an update of many other lines he considered in previous editions.

* A French Defence repertoire for Black
* State-of-the-art coverage of the key lines
* Packed with new ideas and critical analysis

HASH(0x918f060c) étoiles sur 5 Watsons Greatest Book on the French Defence Over 400 pages 13 septembre 2012
Par Carl Armstrong - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have both 2nd and 3rd editions of Watson's "Play the French Defence" as well as his excellent "Dangerous Weapons the French Defence" which is a goldmine of interesting ideas for both white and black, but this latest 4th edition of "Play the French Defence" is probably his greatest work on that particular opening so far, and over 400 pages long.He gives all the latest trends for both white and black, with lots of diagrams and illustrative games to show clearly the plans and objectives of each variation, and includes many original ideas of his own, all of which he double checked with a powerful engine to make certain they are sound.(Most opening book authors dont do this since it is laborious and time consuming).He includes many fresh ideas and improvements over his last 2 editions, and even advocates the MacCutcheon variation with lots of new ideas for both white and black.No author understands the French Defence better than John Watson and this 4th edition has got to be an all time classic.A must have for club players, and fascinating for chess students, outlining plans and objectives in closed as well as open positions.

HASH(0x918f0858) étoiles sur 5 Watson Again! 9 janvier 2013

John Watson has done it again. He's just the best author on chess period. Even if you don't play the French Defence, this book will make you better. Every page has some idea, some plan or tactic where I say "Wow". I have been a 2100 USCF player for thirty yrs and have only started to understand the game through his books.

HASH(0x918f081c) étoiles sur 5 Absolute Classic! 7 mai 2013
Par R. Tobias - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is possibly the best, and almost certainly the most famous reference for the player of the French Defense, written by American IM John Watson, widely considered in the chess world to be one of the best opening analysts in the world. This is a work for serious lovers of the French Defense, those who are willing to burn some midnight oil to gain hard-fought half- and whole points with the Black pieces. Consistent with the explosion in opening theory, this 4th edition now has blossomed to over 400 large format pages. Every reasonable White line is at least touched on, from mainline Winawers all the way to rare moves like 2.b3. The King's Indian Attack, of course, is also covered, as are all mainlines. In many cases Watson gives the Black player more than one option. For example, in the Advance Var with 6.a3 ( 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 c5 4.c3 Nc6 5.Nf3 Qb6 6.a3) Watson gives Black two choices, 6...Bd7 and ...Nh6 to choose from. Having two options has many benefits. For example, it allows you to pick the line that is more in line w/ your preferred style of play, it makes it harder for an opponent to prepare for you if you use both lines, and if one line falls into theoretical disrepute, you have something to fall back on. You should be aware that Watson is not fond of 'hand holding', that is, he does not like to spend a lot of time explaining general principles. He believes that the truth of a position is found in fairly dense, complicated variations. So this work will have the most value for more advanced players, perhaps USCF 1700-1800 or so and higher ( a few motivated lower rated players with good memories will also benefit). Lower rated players may find more value in more general opening works before graduating to this 'master class' in the French. Highly recommended for dedicated French players, and those who play 1.e4 can't afford to ignore this either, as their opponents will be using it!

HASH(0x918f0b10) étoiles sur 5 GOOD BOOK 21 mars 2013
Par Aaron - Publié sur

Now I could see why people love this book. John Watson breaks everything down and makes everyhing clear and simple. I been looking for a really good on the french defence and think I finally found a book that would help build my knowledge on this opening. Overall, if you play the french defence or want to learn this opening, this would be a good start right here. Haven't read the other three editions of his book but I'm pretty sure they're just as good as this one. Would recommend it for sure.

Great book. The comments saying that it is a book designed for moderate to high level players are misleading. Anyone with determination and some know-how can learn from this book. Watson does a good job of explaining every idea with clean and concise language without going overboard in terms of analysis. It's actually really easy to read, despite it being crowded with variation after variation.
