Vladimir Barsky

Sample pages (pdf)

This book offers a repertoire for Black in the Philidor Defence after 1.e4,d6; 2.d4,Nf6; followed with 3..e5; for Black in most lines. This new move order in the Philidor has resulted in it's increased popularity as an alternative to the heavily analysed Ruy Lopez and Petroff Defences.

Here, in seven chapters Barsky offers plenty of ideas for Black and examples of Black's play at master level. The first chapter examines White alternatives to 3.Nc3, whilst the remaining six chapters focus on 3.Nc3, White's most likely reply.

Each chapter has a "Main Ideas" section which explains plans and objectives. This is followed by "Step by Step" which contains a more detailed analysis of the variation in question. Finally a "Complete Games" section shows how the repertoire works in practical play.

Vladimir Barsky is an International Chess Master, journalist and coaching second of A.Morozevich in numerous international competitions, including two World championships. He is the author of a variety of books about chess and chess players.

Published 2010, softback, 224 pages.
