Sample pages (pdf)

The French Winawer (1.e4,e6; 2.d4,d5; 3.Nc3,Bb4) offers Black an early chance to create an unbalanced game with strengths and weaknesses for both sides. Black can enter a tactical battle in the 7.Qg4 variation or aim for more strategic play. The Winawer has long been a popular choice amongst French Defence players. enjoying a sound reputation.

In this book long-time Winawer exponent and FIDE Master Steve Giddins offers a repertoire for Black with more than one choice of move offered at various key stages. He shows examples of play against all White's major set-ups including his options at the 4th move (4.a3 and 4.Ne2), 5th move, (5.Bd2 and dxc5) and 7th move (7.a4, 7.Nf3 and 7.Qg4).

Using 25 illustrative games, with probing questions and answers at key points throughout, Giddins explains the strategic and tactical ideas behind the Winawer System, enabling the reader to take up the opening with confidence. The book includes an index of variations covered.

Steve Giddins is a FIDE Master and a former editor of British Chess Magazine. He has played and studied the French Winawer for 25 years.

The Move by Move series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge.
