IM Jeremy Silman on the PCG

At Contre Gambit Philidor, Frederic Fournier makes reference to an article at Chess.com by IM Jeremy Silman [pictured] called "Non-Master Assessments" in which The Dynamic Philidor Counter-Gambit is mentioned. Apparently Jeremy Silman is of the opinion that analysis by non-titled players is questionable.

Unlike other national masters who have authored books about unusual openings which they never play, I have played the PCG more than 700 times over the board! Last year alone, I drew against these four strong players.
