Hi.

I see Mr Fernandez gives a warning about another line of 5...c5 Austrian. One where I, many years ago, lost my first corr game in the Pirc (possibly ever). Memories Smiley

Plus for that though.

Hi.

Whole line is tricky otb. I'll post the three 14.g4 corr games when I've slept. You can make up your own mind.

Fernandez gives 14.Rhe1! but if I'd guess it's probably mostly because it seems to require precision from black (14...Rd8) and not because it confers any real advantage.

Have a nice day.

Thank you...

After 11 Qa4 I played 11...Nh6 when the game went 12 Bd2 Nf5, 13 0-0-0 dxe5 14 g4 Nfd4 (only move from what I could see) 15 Be3 when I suspect that 15...Qe6 is the best try although at the time it didn't appeal to me so I went for a pawn storm on the queenside that didn't end well. Hence my interest in whether Fernandez had looked at the line in any detail as other than this line I quite like 5....c5 against the Austrian.

Hi.

Ok, so. First it can be noted that the last three games in this line on ICCF have been draws after:
1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.f4 Bg7 5.Nf3 c5 6.Bb5+ Bd7 7.e5 Ng4 8.Bxd7+ Qxd7 9.h3 cxd4 10.Qxd4 Nh6
Fernandez ends the line after 11.Qf2, with a += and just notes that McDonald concluded on chesspublishing that the knight on h6 is a problem that can't easily be solved. There is of course some truth to this statement but the results of the corr games indicates this may be a solvable problem.

In the line with 10...Nc6 we can easily conclude that if the queen goes 11.Qf2 then 11...Nxf2. It has to find somewhere else (many options) and this means there is a true branching of the line between 10...Nc6/10...Nh6. Realistically they could merge again if say 10...Nh6 11.Bd2!? Nc6 12.Qa4; however 11...dxe5 looks OK and keeps from transposing.

The reasoning behind 10...Nh6 appears to be that the knight will probably end up on h6 anyway so it may be more flexible to go there right away. For example it could quickly jump out to attack a bishop on e3 if white puts it there. The immediate point of 11.Qf2 should be that with g3 guarded 11...Nf5 can be met by 12.g4 and white is doing very well. The point of 10...Nc6 appears to be forcing the play while allowing more squares for the queen, but not specifically the f2 square. If not I basically don't see why allowing white more options would be desirable.

Quick reads through some Pirc books does not give the impression anyone has systematically put down in writing solutions for all major continuations after 8.Bxd7+ and 9.h3. Some work may be needed.

As far as I can tell Fernandez does the best job so far and imo. in below line gives:
1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.f4 Bg7 5.Nf3 c5 6.Bb5+ Bd7 7.e5 Ng4 8.Bxd7+ Qxd7 9.h3 cxd4 10.Qxd4 Nc6

A good continuation against 11.Qe4
A really strange one against 11.Qd3 (14.Ng5!? instead of 14.Kb1)
A good, probably  best, one against 11.Qa4. The attempt to complicate with 14.g4 is not covered despite three correspondence games. Also the corr players (three again) go 21...a6, but at that point it should not matter to much.

Have a nice day.

Hi.

I'll check the

1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3. Nc3 d6 4.f4 Nf6 5.Nf3 c5
chapter with a correspondence database when I wake up Smiley. See if anyone is having any success against this whole system.

Have a nice day.

Thanks Isolani much appreciated..I did look at a couple of positions with similar endgames to the ones you describe above but chickened out as they were hard to evaluate and lost!! Looks like if I want to play the 5...c5 line against the Austrian I'm going to have to have another look at them!

There are two pages on this line. " A very testing line...White doesn't have an advantage but there are a number of positions which need tests", says Fernandez.
His main line leads, after some unintuitive (for me) fireworks,  directly to a complex endgame 2N+B+5p vs T+B+6p. He thinks both sides keep some winning chances.
I'm not at all familiar with the c5 line and I would have appreciated more explanations along the way.

Austrian Attack and The Modernized Modern

Although a little hard to be certain from the index provided on the publishers website it looks like the Modernized Modern deals with  5...c5 after 1 e4 d6 2 d4 Nf6 3 Nc3 g6 4 f4 Bg7 5 Nf3 c5.

This is a line I've always enjoyed as black but of late I've been striking 6 Bb5+ Bd7, 7 e5 Ng4, 8 Bxd7 Qxd7, 9 h3 cxd4, 10 Qxd4 Nc6 and now 11 Qa4....This line seems to be something of a computer try and isn't covered in Marin's book and I could only find a couple of ICCF games in my database.

So just wondering whether the Modernized Modern looks at this option in any detail, if so I'd be more than happy to buy the book?
