The Henley Files
French Defense - Rubinstein Variation - GM Ron Henley - Volume 1
You sit down at the board. You’ve got Black. Your opponent plays 1.e4… what are you going to do?
1…c5 and 1…e5 are for the players with a ton of time to study. White can steer the game in wildly different directions… and you better be prepared for all of them.
GM Ron Henley insists that, up to the 1700-1800 level, players should focus almost exclusively on tactics and building a repertoire they can rely on.
His recommendation against 1.e4? The Rubinstein French (1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Ncd3/Nd2 dxe4!)
Now, in the first volume of his brand new The Henley Files series, Ron explains how to wreck White’s plans and pile on the pressure with this hugely underestimated opening.
In this incredible 17-hour course, GM Henley will make you forget what you may think about the French… no cramped positions or development problems here!
