Christian Bauer

The Philidor is a flexible defence can lead to a variety of pawn structures. Although the amount of theory to be learned is relatively small, it is important to understand how to handle the different pawn formations which can arise. In this definitive study of the Philidor Grandmaster Christian Bauer examines both the main lines and lesser known systems of play. He explains key tactical and strategic ideas as well as discussing different Philidor move orders.

There are three main sections to the book: Part 1 covers 1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,d6; Part 2 looks at 1.e4,d6; 2.d4,Nf6; and Part 3 is the Hanham variation (1.e4,d6; 2.d4,Nf6; 3.Nc3,Nbd7; 4.Nf3,e5;). In all there are 14 chapters, each with it's own conclusion. With over 300 pages, this is a comprehensive and objective study of a neglected defence.

Author Christian Bauer is a French Grandmaster who played top board for France in the 2000 Olympiad. He is also author of the popular "Play 1..b6!".

Published 2007, softback, 304 pages.
