James Vigus

Chess Developments is a brand new series providing state-of-the-art openings coverage, focusing on the current trends: critical lines, theoretical novelties and powerful new ideas. It offers players of all levels the opportunity to keep up-to-date with current opening theory whilst also expanding and improving their opening repertoires.

The Pirc (1.e4,d6; 2.d4,Nf6; 3.Nc3,g6;) is an ambitious counter-attacking weapon against. Black allows White to build an imposing centre before striking back and attacking it with pieces and pawns. If Black's strategy is successful White's centre can be blown away, but if Black fails he runs the risk of being overrun. In this book, James Vigus examines the most theoretically important and instructive Pirc games since the publication of his highly acclaimed "The Pirc in Black and White", highlighting the main developments and novelties for both sides. He examines the Austrian Attack (4.f4) with 5..c5; and 5..0-0; as well as the Byrne Variation (4.Bg5), the 4.Be3 System, Classical Variation and Fianchetto Variation.

Studying this book will familiarise you with the latest ideas in this popular opening.
* Essential coverage of the Pirc Defence
* Packed with key new ideas and critical analysis
* User-friendly design to help readers absorb information
