- Philidor Files: Detailed Coverage Of A Dynamic Opening (everyman Chess)
The Philidor is making a serious comeback. One of the reason might be some tricky move order options; debates of that nature have been seen more and more often in chess nowadays. This book therefore offers a very instructive exploration of different move orders. Other subjects are general plans, rare moves and pawn structures in the Philidor. Off course Christian Bauer - a real expert on this opening - also gives his full attention to the main lines; the Larsen's Variation, Antoshin's Variation and Hanham Variation.
In over 300 pages Bauer offers players of all levels - with the white or black pieces - the most hot theory in the Philidor. If you're a serious tournament or club player or want to become one - and if you’re not afraid tickle your opponent a bit from the start - Philidor Files: Detailed Coverage of a Dynamic Opening is written for you. Christian Bauer is a French Grandmaster who also wrote books on other less regular opening such as the Scandinavian and 1...b6.
