Book Description

The widely-played Winawer Variation has been called 'the jewel in the crown of the French Defence'. It is easy to see why:

This is an opening for players who love a real fight. Black immediately attacks White's centre and the resulting positional dynamics offer chances to both sides.

Viktor Moskalenko, a renowned champion of dynamic play, is the ideal guide to show you both the strategic principles and the tactical finesses. As a follow-up to his bestselling The Flexible French, Moskalenko has written another sparkling book brimming with new and original ideas.

The entire spectrum of the Winawer is covered, but of course Moskalenko has his own preferences and he does not shy away from some daring recommendations.

His keen eye for the essence of positions, his talent to find new resources in well-known lines and his own inimitable style will make the 'French Magic' work for every reader.

  • Chess Explained - The French
    The French Defence is one of the most important chess openings. It's qualities are such that it appeals to a wide range of chess temperaments: it is solid yet uncompromising, and with a variety of chaotic variations to appeal to the most bloodthirsty of players, but also offering more tranquil lines to those seeking a quieter existence. While it is hard for White to avoid at least some imbalance in the position, he also has a wide choice. In some of the most critical lines, he accepts major structural weaknesses in return for piece-play and dynamic chances, while he can also seek to establish a modest space advantage without such heavy positional commitments.
