The French Defense is one of the most popular and reliable responses to 1.e4. This book covers the most critical variation of the Winawer, which occurs after the opening moves 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 Bxc3+ 6.bxc3 Ne7 7.Qg4. This volume presents three contrasting ways of meeting White's aggressive opening system: 7...cxd4 leading to the notorious Winawer Poisoned Pawn; 7...0-0 8.Bd3 f5, a solid yet strategically complex system; and 7...0-0 8.Bd3 Nbc6, which leads to a tense, full-blooded battle.
Emanuel Berg is a chess grandmaster and twice Swedish Champion. He is known both for his aggressive playing style and for his thorough opening preparation. He is a lifelong devotee of the French Defense, having played it successfully for more than two decades.
