  • How Past Masters Can Help Your Game

    I’ve gone out of my way to write articles about the importance of balance; everyone needs both tactical and positional/strategic skills (you also need endgame skills, but at the moment we will concentrate on tactics and strategy). To add a... | Read More

  • The Pirc Defense

    The Pirc Defense is still relatively unexplored for a major opening system. Both White and Black may avail themselves of many different approaches to the opening, and we have two outstanding grandmasters here to provide you with ideas on both side... | Read More

  • 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 Beginner Perks of the Pirc

      In 2005 I was going to my first couple of chess tournaments. I never played in USCF as a kid, only as casual games with friends (I won my middle school tournament 6-0 by using the scholar's mate 6 times!) Now after college I just wanted to engage ... | Read More

    • Another Pirc bites the dust

      The Pirc is one of the openings I seem to do well against as White.  Generally, I wouldn't recommend playing it as Black in a tournament situation unless one has done enough preparation.  Generally, White gets easily play and development and Bl... | Read More
