1E4 E5 2Nf3 D6 3D4 BG4?!
Tim McGrew did an interesting article on this line making it seem quite playable. The idea is to go off the famous Opera Box game where morphy executed a truley beatiful combination. After morphys 4.D...

The Philidor - A Theoretical Wrinkle Unearthed

Should I play the Philidor?
I am looking for a line requiring minimal effort to learn but is quite good for Black against 1. e4. I thought I could play the Philidor 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 . However, I am not sure what the best...

Philidor 4.Qxd4 - Any coverage on this site?
Paul Motwani, in annotating Djuric - Pegorari, Cutro 1999, for this site, writes that 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 ed 4.Qxd4 "is a major alternative" to 4.Nxd4. However, I cannot find any coverage of this m...
