It's actually called the fred
Mine's the German Opening which is similar to The Fred. You don't say that King's Indian Defense and The Pirc are the same, right?
I was up by 1 point here, but lost on time against IMPOSSIBLE
Also, here is the German against IMPOSSIBLE:
Even IMPOSSIBLE blocked its d-pawn:

I played my German Opening almost perfect in Round 7 here: http://www.chess.com/live chess/game?id=1178723393
Just played a new variation where white plays 4. d3
Haven't analyzed that line at all and it seems a slight edge for white, but black may be able to eventually hold a draw by applying a lot of preassure on white's king, depending on where white's king decides to reside (center, king's side, or queen's side)

Amusing finish, obviously what you were going for when you threw your extra Rook away.
