"Die Bauern sind die Seele des Schach­spiels!" Diesen Worten ließ er Taten folgen. Der beliebte Schach­spieler und Komponist Andre Danican Philidor schaftte es nicht nur, die Aufmerksam­keit zukünftiger Gene­rationen auf die Bedeutung der Bauern zu lenken. Er schuf zudem die Grund­lagen für eine neue Eröffnung, in der Schwarz vom ersten Zug an versucht, ein solides Bauernzentrum zu errichten. Heutzutage kommt die Philidor-Ver­teidigung meist aus einer Pirc-Zugfolge aufs Brett, z. B. nach 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Sf6 3.Sc3 e5. Schwarz braucht das Endspiel nach 4.dxe5 nicht zu scheuen. Das wird durch Bologans Darlegung auf der DVD deutlich. Die DVD bietet dem Zuschauer ein komplettes Eröffnungsrepertoire gegen 1 .e4. Darin sind auch alle mögli­chen Nebenvarianten wie 3.Ld3, 3.f3 etc. enthalten.

Gesamtspielzeit: fast 5 Stunden.

"The pawns are the soul of chess!" And he put his money where his mouth was! The famous chessplayer and composer André Danican Philidor not only focused the attention of coming generations on the importance of pawns in the game of chess, he also worked out the basis of a new opening in which Black from the very first moves is trying to construct a solid pawn setup in the centre. It is an opening underpinned by his deep philosophy. Nowadays the Philidor Defence is mostly played via the Pirc move order I.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 e5. Black is not afraid of the endgame after 4.dxe5. This is proved by the recommendations given in the DVD as well as by the serious amount of high level games played with the line. The author presents a full opening repertoire against 1.e4 covering also all possible side lines such as 3.Bd3, 3.f3 etc. In the main line he gives the reader the possibility to choose his own favourite plan according his tastes. In modern chess - full of information, games and analysis - it is important to have new ideas and fresh openings. The Philidor Defence DVD provides you with exactly that!

Video running time: 5 hours
