14. Philidor Defense

ChessMood Family, Welcome to the video course "Philidor Defense"

About This Course

While this is a very solid opening, in the high level tournament it happens very rarely. The reason is when white plays with the correct way, Black gets passive positions and the initiative is in White's hands. 
What's the way to play against Philidor Defense? What's the correct way?
In this course I'll teach you that :) I'll show you the best way to play against Philidor Defense, which we found as a result of a few month's analyses with our Grandmasters team.
