Pirc , 3. Bd3
I have been playing 3. . . e5 and after 4. c3, the recommended 4. . . d5!, but after 5. dxe5 Nxe4; 6. Bxe4 dxe4; 7. Qxd8+ Kxd8, I don't love Black's position and White's position seems easier to play,...

Lion (3_Nbd7 4f4/g4) with Philidor/Hanham or 1_g6?
I wonder if it is worth the energy for me (with my modest 40-50 OTB-games a year) to study (and play) more than one so-called _sound_ defences vs 1.e4 against u2200-players (until I am "2200+")... Pro...

This is a pretty solid if not particularly adventurous line with some similarities to the queenless middlegames of the Spanish Berlin. In this line de 5.Qd8 Kd8 6.Bg5 Be6 7.000 Nd7 8.f4 is the "m...

Hi guys, I have developed some interest for the line 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.Be2 0-0 6.0-0 a6 !?

Universal system against 4.Be3 followed by f3orh3
HI! sytsem
I've found some very interesting  system for Black in Pirc. The very popular system for White is to play 4.Be3 and 5.h3  or 5.f3. The normal game in this style is:
1.e4 d6 2. d4 ...

Simple question
Why (B08) 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.Be3 is called the ''150 Attack'' ?
I'm so new to the Pirc/Modern.
