    The '0-1'-variation, becoming famous after Kasparov got beaten to it a good couple of times in simultaneous games against amateurs from Luxembourg...

    Further to the first answer, white's looking pretty poor after:

    7. ... cxd4
    8. a3 Qa5
    9. Rb1 dxc3

    Which is all theory.

    Tried to google for '0-1' e.g. 'Chess French 0-1', but couldn't find anything relevant. Would it be possible for you to refer me to some online resource confirming the name of this variation?

    While I can't vouch for the previously mentioned variation name, but I know that it would be under Winawer sidelines. Fritz categorised the opening under the C17 ECO code.

    Yep, I do know that it is part of Winawer; just somehow thought that this variation has to have its own name, due to its distinct originality.
    Thanks.

    According to http://www.ecochess.com/c00c99/c10c19.htm, looks like you are correct. Provided the black moves Ke7 etc :-)
    What is interesting, if prior to Qg4, the white forces the Black to exchange their bishop i.e.
    1. e4 e6
    2. d4 d5
    3. Nc3 Bb4
    3. e5 c5
    4. a3 Bc3
    5. Qg4 Ne7

    the white seems to be better, according to the stats on www.chesslab.com

    4. a3 is the main move, but your variation doesn't make sense: 4... Bxc3+ is check so white must first recapture 5. bxc3. This leads to the mainline, for example: 5... Ne7 6. Qg4 Qc7!? 7. Qxg7 Rg8 etc.
