Foxy DVD Series – Vol 181
After 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3, Black enters the Philidor by playing 3…e5 next, the Antoshin Variation!
It has been quite some time since the original Foxy Opening videos about 1…d6 were recorded. It is time for an update! More than that actually, as in this all new 2-DVD series, FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin maps out an interesting repertoire for Black which is completely independent of the earlier works.
On this DVD (Part One), he recommends the move order 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6, with the intention of entering a Philidor via 3…e5. The Antoshin Variation is the main focus. Played regularly by Super GM Fabiano Caruana, the Antoshin Variation will give you a seldom seen surprise repertoire turning the tables on a booked up White opponent leaving you with all the clear plans how to proceed.
