Philidor Defense

The Philidor has been in the arsenal of Najdorf, Nimzowitch, Larsen, Kosten, Azmaiparashvili, Seel, Bauer, Benjamen, Svidler, Bacrot, Malaniuk and many more. Grandmasters beat other Grandmasters by playing unfamiliar middlegames from familiar openings!! The Philidor's is a middlegame system! You will never come to this understanding just by studying it!! Our group has discovered that The Philidor is a universal opening system. You can create solid looking formations with both colors that are actually designed for all out attacks!! Most of the theory on the Philidor is 10, 20, 30, and even 40 years old! There are no books on playing the Philidor as white at all!! These facts make the Philidor worth a look! We've found gambits and sacrifices that are as normal as ...Rxc3!! in the Sicilian! If your interested in a fighting and explosive system, this is the group for you!!
