French Defence: Tarrasch Variation[edit | edit source]
"3...Nf6 is the most tactical option for black. He doesn't play for a solid position but prefers to complicate matters with dynamic play. Very interesting positions arise, with rich play and fascinating ideas for both sides (GM Andreas Tzermiadianos)".
For those Black players who don't want to play with an isolated d-pawn (at least: not yet), the 3....Nf6 variation is a good alternative to 3....c5.
