11. Crushing the Pirc

ChessMood Family, Welcome to the video course "Crushing the Pirc"

About This Course

In this course, GM Avetik shares the two most dangerous setups against Pirc Defense.  
The 1st one is Grand Prix Setup, which is strong not only against Sicilian (was covered in the course) but also against Pirc Defense. 
And the 2nd setup is 4.Bf4!? - rare but very interesting move. 
In both setups, you'll not need to remember many lines and you'll have a very clear plan of what to do. 
These setups are very easy to play and they are very unpleasant for Pirc defense players. 
Are you ready? Let's go :) Crushing with ChessMood Openings or to be crushed- it's a choice. 

P.S Special thanks to IMs Shahinyan and Torosyan, for helping me with analyzing the lines.

On the date 26.03.2020 the Pirc course is too short, simplified, no section 2 with 2.d4, 3.Nc3 and 4.Bf4 - its advertised in the introduction, but unfortunately unavailable. Also no pgn.
