In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares with you a simple, effective, and universal chess opening for Black against 1.e4 and 1.d4. Yes, this opening system works for both of the most common first moves from White.
It happens in the Czech Defense from the Pirc Defense which happens after the following moves: 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6. But this is not just Pirc Defense – this is an opening system, so you can play the same setup irrespective of what White plays.
This setup is so powerful that White is often clueless after the opening moves as their pieces are stuck and are really passive. On the other hand, Black has a solid position with great attacking plans!
