Feb-03-10  patzer3844: i understand your statemnt tamar but i think he shouldtry some more moves
Feb-03-10  noviant: you have any idea, what should black move??? Any moves wouldn't make any better for black....
He resign coz he really knows who's his opponent...
Feb-04-10  xenophon: good vintage Adams, reminds me of myself.
Feb-10-10  alexrawlings: This is a nice game.

I always tend to play the winnawer against the french but often get blown away. Is the tarrasch easier to play and/or less likely to implode on white if he isn't sure what he's doing?

Feb-10-10  Robin01: I think the tarrasch is easier to play than the winnawer. I believe there are more early tactics in the winnawer, thus more theory to study regarding traps and tricks.
Jul-26-13  shakespeare: Games like this are teh reason why I never play french as black and the reason why I like it if black plays this opening - perfectly played black is in a permanent squeeze without much counterplay
