The Czech Pirc variation of the Pirc Defense – 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6 – is super popular among 2000 level players. 

One of the main reasons behind its popularity is because of a dangerous trap. Many players who employ the Czech Pirc often pin their hopes on it.

However, there’s a strange-looking novelty that sidesteps this trap and gives White a huge advantage.

You'll discover that along with how to attack against this opening...
