Joe Gallagher

The very closely linked Pirc and Modern Defences are dynamic systems that are favoured by ambitious, counter-attacking players. Black plays in a hypermodern fashion, allowing White to build an unopposed pawn centre with the idea of plotting it's eventual downfall.

The bulk of this book is devoted to the Pirc Defence as Grandmaster Joe Gallagher considers ..Nf6 to be a natural and good move not worth avoiding. The final two chapters look at independent lines of the Modern. Using 56 complete, annotated games Gallagher goes back to basics, explaining the fundamental principles of the Pirc/Modern and it's numerous variations.

Throughout the book there are plenty of notes, tips and warnings to guide the improving player, while important strategies, ideas and tactics for both sides are clearly illustrated. Really this a is a repertoire book for players of the Black pieces who are taking up the Pirc for the first time. It usually offers a choice of lines to suit different playing styles and is aimed at club strength players. Chapters include: Austrian Attack 5..c5 / 5..0-0, Classical 6..c6/Bg4//Nc6, 4.Be3, 4.Bg5/Bc4, The Modern Against c2-c4 and The Modern against 1.e4.
