This is a guide to learning, playing and winning with Philidor's Defence, named after the chess player Andre Philidor. The book provides an analysis of this unusual and dynamic chess opening, a favourite of uncompromising players such as Aron Nimzowitsch and Bent Larsen. For club and tournament players it offers an exciting fighting alternative to the lengthy theoretical paths of the Ruy Lopez and Sicilian. Fully-annotated complete games are used to illustrate the key ideas. The author is one of England's leading players and became a Grandmaster in 1990.
