    Defense Pirc [Desmond vs paulo101977]

    Hello! Would anyone be willing to play the Pirc defense for me as white? Just for the record: I have only two years of experience in chess and I just started studying Pirc (I intend to adopt it as my main black defense).

    I'm happy to give you a game. Want to play with engines or without?
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Thank you for answering me. Maybe at first without an engine, even though I know I'm going to suffer ������

    I will try to play without the board, just doing the calculations mentally. It will be difficult but it is a good exercise.

    I don't really remember the line. I will study the Austrian attack more calmly later. I bought three courses on Pirc, but I confess to being discouraged from playing chess these past few days.
