A Cunning Chess Opening for Black:
Lure Your Opponent into the Philidor Swamp
Taking your opponent out of his comfort zone is a good idea to start your game with. Grandmaster Sergey Kasparov pushes this concept one step further: lure your opponent onto the slippery paths of the Philidor Swamp!
Kasparov presents an original and shrewd opening for Black against 1.e4, the most popular opening move among amateurs.
After Black’s third move, White is confronted with a stark choice: either to continue on the road of the calm Philidor Defence, or to immediately gain almost two tempi by forcing Black into an endgame that looks better for White, if not close to winning.
This second option, however, is a treacherous road strewn with pitfalls as Kasparov demonstrates in his fresh, humorous and persuasive style. White will walk into the Philidor Swamp in which he runs a big risk of getting stuck.
Sergey Kasparov does not bother the amateur reader with variations of 15 or 20 moves deep, but concentrates on the plans and counter-plans for both Black and White.
