The Pirc ( 1 e4 d6) is an ambitious counter attacking response to White’s most popular opening move, 1 e4. Englishman James Vigus provides an up to date appraisal of the Pirc and its many variations. Using illustrative games, he examines the traditional main lines, the fashionable alternatives and the tricky sidelines, while outlining the typical tactical and positional ideas for both White and Black. A study of this book will allow the reader to begin playing the Pirc with confidence in his or her own games. Softback, 382 pages. 152 x 229 x 26.67mm, 625g.
