  • Lighting The Pirc Defense On Fire

    The Pirc Defense is certainly one of the most provocative openings. Black fianchettos his king bishop instead of immediately challenging in the center. White therefore has a variety of fierce attacking methods. Of these, the fiercest is the Austri... | Read More

  • The Modern Defense: A History, Part 2

    Last week, we learned about the pre-war origins of the opening that would become the Modern Defense.  Thus far, the Modern Defense did not have a real name, nor any kind of reputation. It was a curiosity which had been played a few time... | Read More

  • The Modern Defense: A History

    Like the Kan/Paulsen, the so-called "Modern Defense" is an opening with many names. When I first met it, as a beginning chess player, I knew it as the "Robatsch Defense." It has also been called the Ufimtsev Defense, the Kotov Defense, the Pi... | Read More

  • Q&A with Coach Heisman Oct 3, 2014

    "If you had a choice of seeing the future or reading your opponent's mind as they apply to a chess game, which one would you do?" I never had that question before! If I could see the future (not with regards to the game), there are some options ... | Read More

    • Norway Chess 2015 - Round 7

      All drawn today, but not without a spark or two. Anand went for the old line, known from Kasparov-Karpov, m/4 Seville 1987, won convincingly by Kasparov.  Giri played the Pirc and was happy to draw, while Carlsen went for a very dubious line on... | Read More

    • December 8, 2014 (Pirc Defense)

      This one got away from me rather quickly after I played the wrong pawn break on move 7.  It was downhill after that, and turned into a full-fledged, forgettable disaster. | Read More

    • Morning Pirc

      This was an odd Pirc that started with 1. d4.  I was actually going for a KID setup, and belatedly realized white had transposed!  There's some vaguely 150 type stuff from white, but it's all very disorganized.  On my end, I don't think that Pi... | Read More

    • How to Lose with the Pirc Defense!

      In this lunch hour game, I blundered on move 16, in effect lowering the drawbridge to allow the enemy troops into Pirc Castle. | Read More

    e4 is played by White to develop his pieces rapidly and castle. e4 is a good move for beginners! You learn to develop quickly and to attack, since it opens up the Queen and Bishop. If met by e5, you have what's called an "open game." Then the most... Read More »
