The Pirc Defense - Part 8: The Austrian Attack 2!

Jul 29, 2013

IM Mackenzie Molner shows off a highly topical variation of the Austrian Attack, where both sides walk a tightrope. His pet opening leads to a choice for the first player - either take a perpetual or run the gauntlet. The wild and entertaining game features just about every piece en prise, but Molner keeps his cool and calmly uses his twin knights to mate his 2600+ opponent. For those that like to fight to win with black, you could do a lot worse that Molner's Pirc Defense!
