What happened to Austrian Attack part 2?
very good opening im very often use.thanks a lot
actually goldens, that game was not a pirc defense but a gruenfeld defense.
this is the opening used by Fisher in the game of the century and some of you say it is bad? won´t even lose any more of my time answering to such nonsense.
nice i always play this line if white plays e4 i play d6 itcan tranpose to the
I was waiting for this video, thanks.
I really, really hope you'll also cover the lines with Be3, f3, 0-0-0...in other words the "Yugoslav attack" against the Pirc. I think that is the most fun to play!
Very nice opening, thank you for covring this IM Mackenzie
If you play e4, you should know the defenses that black has and how to play against them
Very nicely explained with coverage focused on the ideas inherent in the positions. I look forward to your game in the next video.
so amazed at the fact that basic member are more mature than a paying one
The Pirc is not bad, it's provocative to some extent, but it gives Black decent chances enough for counterplay.
Don't feed the troll please.
learn a real opening like the najdorf. Why waste your time with the pirc. Such a bad opening...
by GM Mackenzie Molner
In the first video of two parts on what is potentially white's most challenging approach to the Pirc, IM Mackenzie Molner does what he's done so well in this series: Make black's position look easy, completely playable, and fun! Part one of two reviews the early captures on c5 by white, the Bb5+ variations, and a few other sidelines every aspiring Pirc player must know!
