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?

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

OK no worries.

1.e4

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.

And will lose a pawn. Playing without the board it is difficult to 'see' the correct moves. And with the board too ggg.

hmm OK I was expecting 7. ... Qa5 which seems to be what's usually played if whte goes dxc5.

It is difficult to play without a board, but I will try. I am translating some plays from a book in Spanish about the Pirc Defense and taking notes in a notepad, but the process is slow. With that, I intend to improve my skills in some lines of Pirc.

No worries, I can put the PGN viewer if that helps?

This one we can play with the help of the PGN viewer, but I believe that others we can play without it. I have to go back to training chess blindly, even to improve my rating on sites like chess.com.

I apologize, I suffer from depression. Sometimes I feel so bad that I can't play or do other things. I will continue yes, I just need to recover.

No move for nearly 2 months, I'm claiming the win. Cheers.

I presume there was a good reason to swap the dark-squared B?

Dunno about a good reason :) , but my reason was to go Pawn-e5 without allowing ...Nd5. I felt I could block the black g7-bishop out of the game and my knights would be good. Also wasn't really sure where my DSB belong since it's prone to attack on e3 or f2 by ...Ng4 for example, and on a3 black can trade off the bishop I was trying to play against with ...Bf8.
