This 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. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.The Winawer is a very popular choice amongst French Defence players. It enjoys a sound reputation and reaches positions rich in possibilities for both players. It offers Black the opportunity to enter sharp, dynamic lines, such as the notorious Poisoned Pawn Variation, as well as lines which are more strategic in nature. In this book, FIDE Master Steve Giddins invites you to join him in studying the French Winawer, an opening which he has played for over 25 years, and its many variations. He examines instructive games, covers the most important lines and provides answers to all the key questions. *Essential guidance and training in the French Winawer*Important ideas absorbed by continued practice*Utilizes an ideal approach to chess study

Editorial Reviews

As a startup book to ease you into the Winawer, this one is just about perfect.- New in Chess This is an excellent book and can be recommended to anyone thinking about taking up the Winawer, or to players who already play it and wish to improve their understanding of it. For those taking up the Winawer from new, they may subsequently find that they also need a traditional “variations” opening book (Giddins himself points the reader to John Watson’s ‘play the French’ occasionally in the text), and it may well be that Giddins’s book and a traditional book work best in combination (though I repeat that Steve’s book is not skimpy on theory). Highly recommended.- British Chess Magazine
