Pirc

The Pirc Defence, sometimes known as the Ufimtsev Defence or Yugoslav Defence, is a chess opening characterised by Black responding to 1. e4 with 1. ...d6 and 2. ...Nf6, followed by ...g6 and ...Bg7, while allowing White to establish an impressive-looking centre with pawns on d4 and e4.

It is named after the Slovenian Grandmaster Vasja Pirc(pronounced "peerts").
