Grandmaster Repertoire 15: The French Defence Volume 2 - Emanuel Berg

Paperback or hardback, 304 pages

The French Defence is one of the most popular and reliable responses to 1.e4.

Grandmaster Repertoire 15 - The French Defence 2 - 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.

Volume One of the series covers White's other options in the Winawer Variation.

Volume Three (due Winter 2014) will deal with the Tarrasch, Advance and all of White's other options.
