Overview

french defence part 2World expert on the French Defense GM Mihail Marin provides an opening repertoire for Black based on 3…Bb4, commonly known as the Winawer Variation, against 3.Nc3, one of White’s most active weapon against the French.

While both 3…Bb4 and 3…Nf6 are principled as they attack White’s center, the author has a clear preference for 3…Bb4 because it offers an early strategic plot. The point is that in many lines of this variation, the exchange on c3 leads to strategically double-edged positions.
