C41: Antoshin : improvement for black after 6.Bf4
Hi everyone. That is my first posting on the forum
A few days ago I played a game against a strong fide master, and he played the Antoshin. I went for the Ff4 variation. It was probably a mis...

I have been trying this out online and many of my opponents play an early dxe5 but none of the books I have cover this and nor does the Ginger GM in his Chessable course.
Any theory that could be...

Samisch vs Philidor
I like to play Nf3 and Bc4 lines vs the Philidor but the Samisch King's Indian lines vs the Pirc and Modern. So there are some tricky move orders which get me out of book.

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:

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

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...
