    Very nice explanation,but is Philidor an opening for players around 1600-1800? You can easy get difficulting in manovering.Please make more stuff on Philidor,not only mainlines.

    The Phillidor Defense reminds me of a backup Najdorf Sicilian. The e5 and d6 pawns are there, with the c-pawn available as an extra.

    This is a good way to show how to defense your position and your strategy and dont give up on that.
    Nice explaination!

    Great video GM Khachiyan! As black I've been avoiding Philidor like the plague, but you show how it can be a great backup weapon!

    @jcasey91: Rxe4 and the knight is defended.

    Yes I like this game, especially the basic middle game idea of not allowing pieces to get trapped and the endgame ideas of simplification when ahead in material. Consistency throughout seems to be the guiding principle. Please make more videos on Philidor with all possible variations. Thank you GM Melikset Khachiyan.

    10:30, Nxe4 wins a pawn, does it not? Only further proving his inaccuracy.

    Hi, really enjoy it ! I like the attitude " if I'm missing something then I'm weak , and he is strong, let him prove it, what i missed " ;)

    Thank you for the explanation of the 'normal' move order, i.e. 1.e4, e5; 2.Nf3, d6; 3.d4, Nd7; 4.Bc4,...
