Poll: C15: Dealing with the Winckelmann-Reimer Gambit
I'm a bit surprise that the Winckelmann-Riemer Gambit,

is not a more popular reply to the French Winawer.  My guess is that one of the...

C18 : 7...0-0 Winawer with 8...Nbc6/13. Qg4
I saw two key games in the US Championship, both played by Conrad Holt:
[pgn][Event "US Championships"]
[Site "Saint Louis USA"]
[Date "2015.04.10"]
[EventDate "2015.04.01"]
I have no engine running, but just by seeing, I think that 20...b4 was better instead of 20...Qg6, idea to open up the a-file and penetrate the queenside before letting White play g5 with effect.
Then he played it two rounds later:
[pgn][Event "US Championships"]
[Site "Saint Louis USA"]
[Date "2015.04.12"]
[EventDate "2015.04.01"]

C17: Winawer 5.Bd2 sideline
The Winawer-mainlines are quite fun to play as Black. However, one of the disadvantages of the Winawer, is that white has a considerable amount of "sidelines" available. I guess 5.Ne2 is one of the mo...
