The Philidor Defence (2...d6) is a solid, although somewhat passive, alternative to the more common 2...Nc6. 

White normally replys with 3.d4, occupying the center; Black has to choose whether to release the central tension with 3...exd4 or to mantain it with 3...Nf6, 3...Nd7 or 3...f5!? (Philidor's move).
