Understanding Middlegame Strategies Vol.8 - French - Winawer

In this Video course we deal with the French Winawer. The aim of this course is to arm club/tournament players with middlegame ideas which they can use in their own practice.


The centrepiece of the 2nd Munich Chess Festival (24 May to 2 June) was a well-attended A-Open with 132 participants. A number of strong grandmasters took part, top seed was Vladimir Fedoseev.

Among the players most likely to challenge the grandmaster, who now plays for Slovenia, were Ukrainian Pavel Eljanov, seeded second, and the German grandmasters Dmitrij Kollars and Frederik Svane.

Vladimir Fedoseev took the lead from the very beginning, but was unable to shake off a few other players, including Pavel Eljanov and the less well-known Giga Quparadze from Georgia.

In the seventh round, the Georgian even managed to beat Fedoseev and took the sole lead with 6.0/7.

In the last two rounds, however, Quparadze did not manage to score more than two draws against Frederik Svane and the young German IM Alex Dac-Vuong Nguyen, and was caught up by the chasers.

The best woman in the field was Evgeniya Doluhanova, who finished 11th with 6.0/9.

Here’s what they have decided.

The setup for White recommended by Valeri Lilov is solid and easy to play – the thematic moves are almost always the same ones: Nge2, 0-0, Bg5 (or Be3), Nd5, Qd2. Later, according to Black’s setup, things continue with f4 or even Rac1, b4 and play on the queenside. Starting with the classic Botvinnik-Spassky, Leiden 1970, the author describes this universally employable setup in 7 videos (+ intro and conclusion).
