Welcome to my Philidor’s Defense ECO (C41) games page!

On this page I display links to my chess games in which I played either side of the Philidor’s Defense.

The games include analysis and diagrams. I will place the actual games on separate pages listed by the opponent played. 

When the Philidor’s Defense is played properly it tends to end in a draw. According to Mike Hoffer, this opening is quite popular among jail and prison inmates. Because I rarely play either side of it I only have one game to post right now.
