This book shows 200 diagrams that together offer a picture of the positions reached after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3. One could say this book takes a look at the somewhat obscure second moves from black, almost everything except 2... Nc6 and 2... Nf6. Not only the Philidor (2... d6) is a topic of this book, but also the Elephant Gambit (2...d5), Latvian Gambit (2... f5), Busch-Gass Gambit (2... Bc5), Damiano Gambit (2... f6) and Gunderam Defense (2. Qe7).

Tim Sawyer chooses lines that are easy to remember over lines that maybe objectively better, but very complicated. Philidor 2. Nf3 Playbook offers a practical, playful guide to learn answers to this objectively bad black moves for players who are relatively new to the game. This book claims that the best way to study openings is to learn the basic ideas and patterns. Tim Sawyer is a chess lover, a correspondence master and the compiler of the Playbook-series.
