1. e4 d6 2. d4 Nf6 3. Nc3 c6…
The moment you play the 3…c6 move – you enter the realm of Czech Defense.
The c6/d6 setup gives unmatchable solidarity to Black’s position.
You don’t have to commit to any particular structure yet.
And do get creative with your pawn breaks and the queen.
What I love most about the Czech Pirc is that it transposes to the same tabiya more or less.
Whether White starts with 1.e4 or 1.d4, it almost always gets to the above position nonetheless.
Cotton on the fundamental ideas of the opening. Add a few hours of practice. And you can execute it like a pro in your next game.
And to make it easier for you, I bring to you GM Misa Pap’s latest course, Czech Pirc.
A 3-hour-long video training on the most VITAL lines in the opening where Black can turn the table on White with killer plans, ingenious move sequences, and fatal tactical surprises.
