philbill: Nice mating net...!
   Jul-30-09 N Birtwistle vs K Arkell, 2009 (replies)
philbill: An instructive game for Caro Kann players on what to do against the exchange line.
   Jul-29-09 M Yeo vs C Briscoe, 2009
philbill: Nice to see the exchange Philidor a. being played and b. leading to a win - at this level...
   Jul-28-07 T Woodward vs A G Ashton, 2005 (replies)
philbill: Yes, it is one of those examples of a Queen's Pawn opening transforming into a King's Pawn. Specifically, it started out an Albin and went to a Goering Gambit Declined, usually reached via 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.c3 d5...etc, etc...
   Jan-23-06 Philidor Defense (C41) (replies)
philbill: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 Nf6 4. Nc3 Nbd7 5. Bc4 Be7 6. O-O O-O is black's best chance in the Philidor, in my opinion. Some sources call it the 'Improved Hanham Variation', I believe. It is hard for white to prove an advantage and is the closest black comes to achieving equality in

philbill: This is well known theory to any Pirc player. Evidently both players were satisfied with a drawn game

philbill: Well said, PQB4. The only thing I have to add is that Jeff is a Fide Master.
   Feb-28-05 Anand vs Kasparov, 2005 (replies)
philbill: This should be a good one. I wonder which opening it will would certainly be interesting to see Kasparov employ the Scotch - though I suspect a Petroff, Ruy Lopez or Nimzo/QID is more likely.
   Dec-27-04 Alekhine's Defense (B03) (replies)
philbill: Ksadler: No problem. In fact, we have spoken before - I emailed you about your site a few months ago (My real name is Philip Armstrong). Keep up the good work.
