Pirc 4 Bf4: Best Lines/Move Orders
There is no shortage of ways to meet the Pirc defence (1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6). Already at move four white has quite a wide choice of moves and not least of these are the two bishop...

Austrian 150 Attack
I've been experimenting with playing e4, d4, Nc3, Be3 and now f4.
It's not mentioned much in books, as chapters on the 150 Attack concentrate on the regular themes without mentioning the f4 idea ...

150 Attack
It's amazing how strong the 150 Attack can be against slightly dubious play. Here's a case in point. 7. h3 isn't necessary and 9 e5 is a fairly routine punt. By playing 9. .. Nd7 instead of 9. .. dxe5...

Move Order Issue in Marin's Pirc DVD?
So, Marin recommends 1 e4 d6 2 d4 Nf6 3 Nc3 g6 4 Be3 Bg7 5 Qd2 0-0, and consequently, 4 Bg5 Bg7 5 Qd2 0-0, which is liable to transpose following Bh6.

6. e5 Austrian Attack -- Black can easily equalize
It seems that with 8... Nxc3 Black can easily equalize against White's 6. e5 in the Austrian attack. Does White have anything in this line that I am missing?

Pirc Classical 6...Nc6 7.d5 Ne5!? [B08]
I was just checking the March update from IM Sam Collins where he states that white has next to nothing in the opening.

Now I wonder if he talks about 9.Bg5 which I analyzed heavily last year. It looks to me as a nice try for some advantage although I admit things can quickly become extremely complicated.
