Killer Chess Opening Repertoire - 150 Attack
Hi people,
  How would you deal with this line?
  1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 d6 3.Nc3 g6 4.e4 Bg7 5.Be3 0-0
  And here I use to play :
  6.Qd2 (would 6.h3 be better?)

Is there any way white can attain an advantage against the Pirc? According to NCO, with best play black can equalise. The best try was I think 1 e4 d6 2 d4 Nf6 3 Nc3 g6 4 Be3 c6 5 h3 or 5 Qd2.

white opening for pirc player
Hi, I like to play the pirc as black, but I have not found a white repertoire that I like as much as the pirc. I was wondering what do other pirc players play as white?
