Antoshin Variation with 6 Qf3!?
1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 d6 3 d4 exd4 4 Nxd4 Nf6 5 Nc3 Be7 6 Qf3!? is an interesting idea I stumbled upon recently.
Neither of Bauer's suggestions seem to be comfortable for Black:
A) 6...Nbd7 7 Be2!? (7 Nf5 Ne5...

Unless Black can figure out a way to castle Queenside, White just castles Queenside and uses a pawn roller on the Kingside to win material. Maybe Black can avoid the loss of a piece but I don't see...

C41: Philidor Countergambit 3..f5
Now some sources claim Latvian gambit has been finally refuted in several ways ( with best 3.Nxe5! ), we could put our eyes in other "f5" ruptures, mainly from Philidor's Defence.

C41: Philidor Defence: the best defence in chess?
When I was younger and had some ideas about the centre in chess, I'm sure I played Philidor's Defence all the time. Then I found out that it was regarded as a less serious and less optimal defe...

C41: TN in Qxd4/...a6 variation of Philidors
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 exd4 4. Qxd4 a6 5. Qa4+
Its not fundamentally unsound by any means and perhaps worth a try in blitz as if 5...b5? 6. Bxb5+

I spent a fair amount of time at a local bookstore recently with the book "The Philidor Files." I had long ago dismissed the Philidor as a poor opening. However, reaching the Hanha...

C41: Philidor 3...Be6
I wonder if anyone else on here ever plays this variation. I guess sometimes I get annoyed by allowing White a lot of possibilities, although I have been having fun recently with Bird's Defense when ...
