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?

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 ...

What does James Vigus recommend against 4 Bf4 (after 1 e4 d6 2 d4 Nf6 3 Nc3 g6) in his book "The Pirc in Black and White"?

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.
