Pirc Player Suggestion against 3.f3
What do you Pirc'ers do against people that try to dodge your opening via 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.f3?
So far I've been playing the Sämisch, but I don't really like that. Alburt/Chernin in ...

Question about ch 1 in SO Pirc/Modern
1. e4 d6 2. d4 Nf6 3. Nc3 g6 4. f4 Bg7 5. Nf3 c5
It's rather basic.  Gallagher gives this as a response to 1.e4, but why would black take the effort to play c5 on move five when he can claim a Si...

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...
