Vol. 2: Attacking lines

Is there an absolute truth in a flexible opening such as the Pirc Defence? After I had played and studied the Pirc intensively for more than ten years I was sure I had found the best move order against each White system. Then I stopped playing the opening for a while and when I checked new ideas I realized that things were not that simple. Thus, the repertoire I recommend on this PC-DVD is a combination of good lines in my old repertoire that have stood the test of time and new lines inspired by my fresh look at the Pirc.

When playing the Pirc one must know what to do against White's attacking systems. White’s space advantage offers him a lot of active possibilities, but when White proceeds aggressively he creates weaknesses in his own camp that Black can use for counterplay. There are a number of forced lines but they are mostly based on the elementary principles of dynamics and development. With these principles one should find one's way when confronted with a novelty or... forgot the analysis! The resulting positions are usually dynamic or double-edged and offer fairly balanced chances. The better tactician may win, but do not be dissappointed if the game ends in a spectacular and logical draw!
