- A Cunning Chess Opening For Black: Lure Your Opponent Into The Philidor Swamp
This book mostly focuses on the black side of the Philidor, but doesn't forgets strong lines for white either. All clichés of the opening seem to be very true after studying this book: it's provocative, tricky, dynamic and certainly not as bad as most people think. Sergey Kasparov played the Philidor for quite a while and offers the reader a clear overview of the main ideas and some funny sidelines.
It's fair to say A Cunning Chess Opening for Black: Lure Your Opponent Into The Philidor Swamp doesn’t claim to offer all theory and lines that go 20 or more moves deep. That being said, the book convincingly demonstrates that the black Philidor player shouldn't be afraid of the so called Treacherous Ending, attacks on f7 or giving away control on the centre. And the book shows counter attacking ideas exist in every line for black, luring your opponent into the swamp after a somewhat provocative opening. Sergey Kasparov is an Azerbaijani/Belarusian Grandmaster and a well respected chess author.
