Viktor Bologan

The famous chessplayer and composer André Danican Philidor commented that "Pawns are the soul of chess!" And he put his money where his mouth was! Philidor not only focused the attention of coming generations on the importance of pawns in the game of chess, he also worked out the basis of a new opening in which Black from the very first moves is trying to construct a solid pawn setup in the centre. It is an opening underpinned by his deep philosophy.

Nowadays the Philidor Defence is mostly played via the Pirc move order 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 e5. Black is not afraid of the endgame after 4.dxe5. This is proved by the recommendations given in the PC-DVD as well as by the serious amount of high level games played with the line.

The author presents a full opening repertoire against 1.e4 covering also all possible side lines such as 3.Bd3, 3.f3 etc. In the main line he gives the reader the possibility to choose his own favourite plan according his tastes. In modern chess - full of information, games and analysis - it is important to have new ideas and fresh openings. The Philidor Defence PC-DVD provides you with exactly that!
