    Anybody interested in playing a set piece Pirc game against me - you as white? I'd prefer somebody 1600+ that knows the Pirc lines and is willing to play the 150 or Austrian Attack.

    I play the 150, but I don't really know it all that well. If you don't get any other offers, I will take you up on that.

    Bb5+ seems more fun to me, but this sounds excellent. I'll send a challenge - can't because of your settings.

    Bb5+ is helping your opponent. You give away a tempo. Your opponent is likely to play the Bisschop and the Night. Exchanging it would loose an other tempo.
    So no Bb5+ for me in this opening.

    I somewhat use the Pirc as my main repertoire - either I play it aggressive to white's queenside, or sometimes I will transpose it to the Lion's defense.

    I've come to know it's weaker against whatever this opening is called
    1. e4 2. Nf3 3. d4 4. Nc3 (for white)

    150 is
    1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.Be3 Bg7 5.Qd2 *
    Variations: black responds with c6 and 6. f3 d5

    I don't know these lines very well.

    As I know one of the best plans for black is to play c6-b5-Qa5 planning attack on q-side.

    150 Attack is an variation name in England it means that even a 150 BCF grade ( Elo 1800) can beat a very strong player with it.........this is because the ideas and plans are so easy to understand yet difficult to meet.

    I actually heard it was named so because it was popular with ECF 150s.

    this "150" or whatever it's really called is actually a pretty tame line for white to play...if black knows how to respond to this he can equalize or get an advantage rather easy..on the other hand..if he doesn't know how to respond to this primitive set-up...black would get smothered

    150-attack might be fine for black from a theoretical point but as far as I know the posisions is often very dubble-edged, especially the lines where White plays f4 (after having the bishop on g5).

    Not usually much of a prob as black will usually have a pawn on e5 already anyway..idk all depends on what variation is played..like I said though black just has to know what hes doing

    I've also heard it called the caveman attack, because the ideas are so simple. That said, I play it with success against both a class A and a class C players at my club.
