I love the Modern Defense a lot and it's an awesome defense!!!!!!
it's since a long time that i use (copied...!) this defence when i play with the balck, now I'm happy to know that his name is "modern defence".
If you want to know about the Modern Defense
If you think it is a weak defense (it's not)

is the pirc kid and the sicilan dragon the same tatics for black or depends on white set up
The Modern Defense is still very modern. The concept of taking your opponent to the endgame to force him/her to play chess is a concept used by our current world chess champion.
Looks like the sicilian dragon for black just take away the c pawn
es una defensa fuerteee
the pawn doesn't help that much.
White is aggressive, Black is so meek and friendly.
the opening is so meek,as black if ur playing to win you oughta be aggressive
wonderful defence.i like it.Its worked
I think a queen side castle/king side pawn storm would give white a really strong attack in this position.
but this is kings indian defense against e4 is not it ? which is a good idea as I play the KID against d4, but can be passive.
this defense can become aggressive during the middle game. If white can take the knight early this defense becomes difficult to play.
I've been beaten a couple of times by people who did what Black did in this opening.
Interesting opening, the large center gives advantages in aggression later on in the game. However the pawns are vulnerable in the setup and against an aggressive player the line could become broken before it is fully established.
