News from Chessbase Magazine 161

http://en.chessbase.com/post/chessbase-magazine-161-uneasy-lies-the-head

Igor Stohl analyses one line of the PP Winawer we have seen in thread about gingergm (GM Williams) book four years ago....and maybe some recent J.Watson updates.

The line is "new" from 12....d4...and the basic topic for Black is to gambit the d pawn to get open lines vs White king. Status of the line is the gambit is "dangerous"..

Merge the new analysis with the older one:

Another excellent video, Simon.  Thank you.  Your presentation style is superb (definitely not "sleep inducing" as some video presenters can be!)

The main dilemma I see with the poisoned pawn Winawer is that it seems to lead to an exciting draw if both players know what they are doing.  How do you try to vary when a draw needs to be avoided?  I've found myself choosing the Portisch-Hook variation as a less concrete alternative that may allow me to outplay a booked up opponent.

French Tarrasch IQP, which Ntirlis claims is under a theoretical cloud at the moment.

...about a nice video (and commented gamed) by GM Williams (good videos on youtube and his website GingerGM too)

Only happy members can enjoy video...but if you cannot watch, you can read.
