The Pirc is more of a counterattack than a defence: Black allows his
opponent to occupy the centre and provokes a confrontation, trusting in
the power of the g7-bishop and the dynamic potential in his position. It
is the perfect weapon for players who seek a complex strategic fight
with the black pieces.
Mihail Marin has been playing the Pirc for more than twenty years, with excellent results. In The Pirc Defence he not only presents his best analysis against all of White’s major
options, but also shares the strategic insights he has gained through
his extensive experience in this opening.
Mihail Marin is a grandmaster from Romania. His previous
books for Quality Chess have established him as one of the world’s
finest chess authors.
