A Practical Black Repertoire with Nf6, g6, d6 (Vol. 1) - Chess Opening E-Book Download
A Practical Black Repertoire with ...Nf6, ...g6, ...d6 (Vol. 1)
English, Pirc, Reti and Other Defenses
In this volume we consider the Pirc Defense (Chapters 10-27). It has definite advantages in comparison to other openings. To start with, it has not been analyzed so thoroughly, since the White fans of 1.e4 devote the lion's share of their time to study the Sicilian Defense and the Open Games. Secondly, Black can play not only to equalize, but he can also count on seizing the initiative. This is particularly important in tournaments played under the Swiss System in which you must strive for a win irrelevant of the color of your pieces.
Besides the Pirc, we analyze in the first part of the book all possible set-ups in which White refrains from the moves 1.e4 and 1.d4, namely: 1.f4, 1.b3, 1.b4 (Chapter 1), 1.Nf3 (Chapter 2), 1.c4 (Chapters 3, 4). The second part of the book (Chapters 5-9) is devoted to opening schemes in which White does play 1.d4, but then he does not follow up with c2-c4. These are the Trompowsky Attack (1.d4, 2.Bg5) and the London System (1.d4, 2.Nf3, 3.Bf4). In response to these set-ups Black, as a rule, remains true to ...Nf6 and ...g6. The arising opening schemes are similar to the King's Indian Defense (see volume 2), or to the Pirc Defense. This should facilitate considerably the players to master their opening repertoire.
