David MiedemaSample pages (pdf)
The French Winawer Variation (1.e4, e6; 2.d4, d5; 3.Nc3, Bb4) is one of Black's sharpest and tactical options in the French Defence. From the outset the position is unabalanced and often both sides are living on a cliff edge where victory goes to the bravest, most imaginative player.
In this book Dutch I.M. David Miedema explores the latest thinking in the Winawer, including deviations from the main lines for both sides on moves 4 and 5, as well as White's options on move 7. The razor-sharp 7.Qg4 line occupies a major part of the book.
David Niedema is a Dutch International Master who has made the French Defence, and in particular the Winawer Variation, his main defence to 1.e4. He has gained considerable knowledge and experience of the opening.
Volume 2 will cover all White's altenatives to 3.Nc3 in the French Defence.
