after d4 d6 you can also play 2. Nf3 ...

I play 1.e4 and do also play according to khalifmann's book the austrian attack.
I like it quite much, but it is really sharp stuff.
you could also consider to play with c3 Nbd2 e4 like carlsen did today in his game against cheparinov ...

I'm getting off topic, but here was the concluding post from the other board on this subject:
"The consensus (if I can use that word for two respondents) about 2 c4 is that after 1 d4,d6; 2 c4, e5; 3 Nf3, e4;  Black has equalized. If that is the case, then I agree that 2 c4 is just bad."
  That was my post, summing up the other posts.

However, I have to keep in mind the warning given to me by strong Pirc/Modern players, including IM Larry Kaufman, that after 1 d4, d6; 2 c4?, and they showed why.

Do you plan with white to play 1.d4 g6 2.c4 or 1.d4 g6 2.e4


I would much prefer to play 2 c4, as I know and like White side of KID.

However, I have to keep in mind the warning given to me by strong Pirc/Modern players, including IM Larry Kaufman, that after 1 d4, d6; 2 c4?, Black equalizes; and they showed why.  After 1 d4, d6; they convinced me that White must play either 2 e4 or 2 Nf3. I would play 1 d4, d6; 2 e4

Preparation for White against Pirc/Modern

I play 1 d4 and have to prepare against a Pirc or Modern from  GM-level player(s) in correspondence chess.
  My only resource in Larry Kaufman's "The Chess Advantage in Black and White" (2004), where chapters 11-12 cover his recommended lines against the Pirc and Modern.

  I was also thinking of getting "Opening for White According to Anand Vol. 4 - Alexander Khalifman" (2005), which is supposed to have original Khalifman analysis in the Pirc and Modern.

   Would any of your Pirc/Modern specialists have books/CDs/DVDs to recommend to supplement Kaufman's book?
                                  Thanks, CMA
