Why don't you post a fen of the starting position? And which side is to move. And while you are at it, how about a starting move order.

I hope I draw you in the first round. I'm gonna knock you out sucka.
Originally posted by SiskinYeh, it relies on people assuming it's a philidor/pirc. The strategy is defensive, black often defends for 20 or 30 moves, but it can turn nasty for white as black has some unusual resources! Don't under estimate it, i score really well with this opening, i never play anything else (well, hardly never anyway...)
It's just a rebranding of the Philidor defence.
