The McCutcheon Variation of the French Defense (3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Bb4) immediately makes the game more difficult, but often quickly leads to a positional battle. Until recently, the entire system was considered double-edged or even dubious - White only had to know the main line well. But recently the McCutcheon Variation has been developing in a completely new direction. Rustam Kasimdzhanov now calls 5.e5 h6 6.Bd2 the old main line - and reveals how remarkably easy it is for Black to get comfortable play after that. The alternatives 6.Bc1 and 6.Bh4 should not give White any advantage either, but the former FIDE World Champion shows how these lines can be used as a surprise weapon. 6.Be3, on the other hand, has developed into the new main line. Here Kasimdzhanov presents extremely thorough analyses in order to be able to correctly assess the respective lines. In many lines, Kasimdzhanov provides analyses, assessments and recommendations that go far beyond the current state of theory. Nevertheless, you always retain a good overview, and the clarity of the explanations makes studying this DVD a real pleasure.
