Chess Openings: The Pirc Defense

In the Pirc Defense, black tries to defend the center with this minor pieces. This chess strategy is considered a hypermodern opening. After fianchettoeing his bishop to g7, black looks to control the dark squares in the middle while still allowing his light square bishop a great diagonal to develop. If black is not careful white can put lots of pressure on the kingside of black, limiting the development of black’s pieces. Black must counterattack to put up a fight.

  2. I enjoy sitting with my xhessbiard in front of me and reenact each move you do. Thank you so much

  3. Very interesting interesting. Almost looks like a king's indian defense, right?

  4. This was awesome, but I have a question at 0:17 when you moved your knight to g6. How would you respond to 3.e5 …?

    I play alot of agressive players and I saw that move e5 a mile away and after going down the line of possible moves as best as I could calculate, it seems to me that white wins with that move. How could black come out winning?

  5. take the pawn after white retakes take the queen, after white retakes he can't castle

  6. srbija nailed it, but yes, take pawn with dxe5. if he does take you can take his queen and if he takes your queen with his king you can move knight to g4, attacking the fork of the rook and also attacking the pawn on e5. This is very good for black, esp since white can no longer castle and black is now attacking and white is on the defense.

  7. Yes very similar. White usually has his pawn on c4, but black still develops early on very similar to the KID with many of the same ideas. Good observation.

  8. Thank you both for the answers. I see I still have a long way to go. I was trying to not lose a queen, but I guess thats a good thing now.

  9. yeah not my style either but i always start e4 so i run into this from time to time. I def play the aggressive line for white.

  10. Hey man, just so you know i stopped watching jrobi's video cuz i consider him a punk for not playing you lol you're awesome man!
