Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-03-04  caballos2: It is to some extent ironic to see Marshall confronted with a gambit opening like the ones he was likely to play! A good psychological move by Winawer. This approach can be very effective: I once played someone who always played the Caro whenever possible, so when I had black, I put his pet line on the board. Somehow it looked like he was afraid to play too violently against his beloved opening and went down in flames.

  refutor: any books written on winawer?
Mar-09-05  shortsight: i don't think so, other than opening named after him, eg. the winawer variation of the QGA. would like to see the book too if there's one.
Jul-04-17  sudoplatov: Winawer has French Line too; perhaps more famous than his counter-gambit.
