Hey i know all the sexy lines for white and black in this opening. I've played literally 500 games in this opening! If you draw me in the first round you're toast, simple as that! That goes for the second and third rounds too sucka!! 😛
Originally posted by Siskin It's just a rebranding of the Philidor defence.
Yeh, 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...)
