As I don't play the Pirc (yet), but have the book, I can only give a very short summary:

Vigus writes that 4.Bf4 "can transpose to a 150 Attack", while White might "benefit from the extra control of e5" (p. 378). So he recommends either 4...c6 with the idea of ...Qa5 to fight for control over e5 (illustrated in the game Gavrilov-Tseshkovsky, St. Petersburg 2001) or 4...a6!? (his marking), which would be not so good after 4.Be3 due to 5.h3 and 6.f4, but that is not possible here with the bishop already on f4 (4... a6 illustrated in Hamdouchi-Beliavsky, Las Vegas 1999).

Best regards,

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"?
