Philidor defence. Central attack - download video
Philidor defence is the very old variation used at Steinitz times; it was named in the honor of the excellent player Francois-Andre Danicon Philidor. He repeatedly used this defence playing against the first world champion, and gained success in some of the games. Nowadays this defence is not used that much as it gives the initiative to the White immediately and the center is conceded. Still this video lesson is worth watching to know how our predecessors played and how chess developed. This video is divided in three parts. In the present lection the main system of the White is reviewed - the central attack giving the considerable advantage.
