In this updated English edition, Christian Seel presents a complete repertoire against 1.e4, based on the Antoshin Variation (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 exd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Be7) of the Philidor Defence.

Underestimated for a long time, this line is now a solid component in the repertoire of world-class grandmasters such as Aronian, Nisipeanu and Bacrot.

Seel sets out the latest state of play in all important lines, with thorough strategic and tactical explanations and is not afraid to betray some of the secrets from his own analysis lab. The preface to the book was written by Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu.

Carsten Hansen, ChessCafe.com:
"Overall, the quality of this book is of a very high standard with regard to author input, original analysis, improvements over existing theory, explanatory prose and even production value."
