Oh geez. Not this crap again.
A. The Austrian Attack is completely overrated and not that challenging to the Pirc.
B. The Four Pawns Attack is not possible against the Pirc since an early Nf6 forces Nc3.

Hahaha, White was already better in that game by about Move 11. You should have just played 3...e5, which is the best line, and just laugh at White for play the dumb 3. Bd3.
Originally posted by JusuhThe October Chess Life says Kamsky is returning from a 7 year layoff, though I can't find any tournament activity by him from 1994-2004. He recently won the New York State Championship over a strong field.

Jesus man, lay off. I think we all know Nc3 is better than Bd3. There is a reason why not too many people play that move - It's not as good as Nc3. You are unbelievably rude to me, when I have said nothing to you. Get a life.
Originally posted by !~TONY~!Black can play e5 after Nc3, too if he is so inclined; Nc3 does not prevent e5 though Nf3 would. 3 ..... e5 would lead to a Philidor setup depending on what the next few moves were. Looking for some firm "advantage" after a few moves is a futile gesture in standard openings. I suppose that Kamsky could say that 3 Bd3 leaves open the option of advancing the c-pawn to c4 while still immediately defending the e-pawn; it's possible to envision the opening moves leading to some sort of King's Indian setup if Black doesn't play e5. Therefore, there seems to be a logical basis for the move even if it is not the usual one.
I don't have an ego, I just have opinions on things. Yes, the opening played did transpose to an Austrian, but a better one for White, since Black couldn't strike at the center as effectively. The problem with Bd3 is that Black can play e5. It's that simple. I don't think White has any advantage after e5. Where is it? In that context, since he chose a m ...[text shortened]... arrogant, although I would rather be slightly more confident in myself to rude and insulting.
