Rantings of Pirc Addict
I admit it.  Embarrassed  I love the Pirc! I don't quite know why. I have been told it does not suit my style. As, white I play 1 d4 or 1 c4 and I aim for solid, relatively risk free but somewhat dynamic posi...

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.
