The Winawer variation of the French Defence is one of the most solid and respected defences to 1 e4. In this new Monograph, Eric Schiller turns his attention to the most aggressive line for White, the "Poisoned Pawn Variation". The latest games and up-to-date analysis suggest that the pawn is not tainted, but is actually quite tasty! A full repertoire against the Winawer is presented, providing White with rich tactical and positional play.
