    what about czech-pirc

  • hace 8 meses


    So I decided to try this out OTB and of course my opponent immediately goes into a line not covered by either video.  Still worked out for me however.  Here is the game...

    Really amazing stuff. I'm gonna use this in an OTB match tournament next saturday against an opponent who always plays the Pirc Defense against 1. e4

    Well, this is the classical two knight system for white against the pirc defence, in this system black will not play c5 either before or after castling. Black options after castling are Bg4 which is not possible because of 5.h3, c6 or Nc6, but it is good to know what white can do to punish black mistake in playing c5!

    GM Dzindzichashvili is a methodical machine and a legend.  He consistently delivers the most deliberate opening analysis.  Pure gold.

    Thanks Dzindzi.  Now my group will have to pool all our resources to combat your vile ideas against our precious opening.   Anyone willing to help or learn?  Then join the Pirc Café.  We play thematic discussion/vote chess to explore the variations in the Pirc Defense.

    Very interesting GM Dzindzichashvili!

    Thanks for taking the time to provide your analysis of your new system.

    @ IM pfren and @ isin52

    At 5:10 after black plays 17...Qa4, white simply plays 18.b3! and not 18.BxRf7 as suggested by Roman. Therefore Qh4 wouldn't be available afterwards. Also, it gives white +3 !

    Hi, I was analyzing Romans Anti-Pirc lecture with Houdini and I was amazed that those "novelties" and new lines are 100% Houdini's best moves and choices. Where is Dzindzi in it?

    Sorry Dzindzi:)

    @JBades6310: thanks a lot for the diagrams!

    Although it's always a great pleasure to watch Dzindzichashvili's videos, without these diagrams I would have to watch the video many times to fully understand it all.

    Thanks for another great lecture. You are talking of some former videos about the Pirc. Can anyone say me where to find them?

    Great. Up to now, playing against the Pric has been one (of many) dark spots in my opening repertoire. The aproach to clearly pick one color and focus on the best moves for one side is also the right way to go. One reason why those chess.com videos turn out to be a very efficient way to build an opening repertoire is that stronger players narrow the options down and give a clear recomendation. Also, getting analysis which deviates or goes beyond standard theory text books is amazing and reminds me how much we are getting for our chess.com diamond membership.

    Below are the lines shown in Roman's system against the Pirc Defense. I left out a couple lines that he went over, but only if they were ones he did not recommend. I added annotations whenever I thought it necessary and tried to quote Roman during important points. I also separated the 5... c5 and 5... 0-0 variations because I thought it would be less convoluted to read this way. Let me know if you have any comments, or if you think I missed something important. I hope these diagrams will be useful if one wanted to refer back to them later, as I know I will. Enjoy!

    "At 3.10, Nd5 is an annoying move, but what if a6 is played here"
    Good question.

    It appears that after: 10.Nd5 a6? 11.Bxc6 bxc6 12.Nxe7! black is in big trouble! If he does not take the knight white will have a great game without sacrifice, and if black does take the knight (12...Kxe7) 13.Qd6+ is devastating.

    But probably good to work out the variation if you're going to play this as white.
