IM Mackenzie Molner concludes his thorough treatment of his pet Pirc Defense. Here he gives the broad strokes for the mostly undiscovered Bg5 lines, whereupon White can continue with moves like Qd2 or the hyper-aggressive f4. Molner will show you his own research, but also areas in which you can carve your own path. He features games with Anand and Nakamura on the White side, but he also hopes you'll become a practitioner of the defense for Black!
