thanks , it was nice.
It is nice to see a fellow Armenian really excel at something. Shat lavek shaxmatits.
"Makes you wonder if perhaps the Winawer should not be your first choice."
Or perhaps the 7...O-O line should not be your first choice.
The main alternative is 7...Qc7 which is the poisoned pawn.

seems like you have to play really precise as black or you end up in a bad position. Makes you wonder if perhaps the Winawer should not be your first choice.
by WGM Tatev Abrahamyan
WGM Tatev Abrahamyan continues to show you how to walk the tightrope between winning and losing in the Winawer. Here she highlights the Bg5 idea by white, focusing on the critical ...c4 to get white's other bishop off the board. Abrahamyan loves the French and gives plenty of recommendations for which lines are her favorites. Spoiler alert - she chooses systems that let black attack white too!

She's competed in multiple U.S. Women's Championships, with her best result coming in 2005 - tying for first place only to lose out in the playoff. Born in Yerevan, Armenia in 1988 - Tatev came to the U.S. as a young girl, and quickly rose through the ranks, eventually joining the U.S. Women's Olympic Team. An expert in the French Defense, Tatev's Debut Video Series reveals many of her personal repertoire secrets.
