Nc3 g6 4. Nf3 The Austrian Attack begins 1. Nf3, and was a favourite of Fischer. This direct, aggressive line is one of the most ambitious systems against the Pirc. Jan Timman has played the Austrian successfully with both colours. Yuri Balashov does well with the white pieces, and Valery Beim has an impressive score on the black side.

During the game, I thought he was playing some radom moves in the opening to confuse me. I checked with OE after the game and he knew what he was doing until move 7. Nc3 g6 4. Nf3 Bg7 5. Be2 6. Bg5 c6 7. Qd2[diagram in the link above] Nbd7 8. Bh6 e5 9.
Bxg7 Kxg7 Qxd4 Nc5 So, I analyzed a similar sac here and it looked good! Qd2 Nxh5 Nd4 attacking the knight on f4 with my queen Nxd5 Qg5 But the game went on Kh8 Of course, lines can be chosen so that they look less alike, but overall they share similar structures for both sides.
I have heard that in general, the B on e7 is more solid, yet passive, and the bishop on g7 is riskier, but gives better attacking chances. Now, I know that these are likely overgeneralizations, but do they have some degree of truth in them?
Finally, do these 4 openings feature similar pawn breaks like that f-pawn that I love to push? On the other hand the pawn at g6 is a convenient target for a White pawn-storm. The pawn seems just as likely or unlikely to wind up an endgame weakness at c2 or c3. It all depends on how the rest of the game goes. Partly that might just reflect changes in chess fashion, which can be as irrational as changes in any other kinds of fashion.
In the OI and the Philidor overgeneralizing again Black places his center pawns first, and tends to his other pawns and pieces later; in the KID and Pirc, Black develops his flank first and figures out what to do with his center pawns later.
Since it is the placement of the center pawns that does so much to determine the strategic contours of the game, Black has a little more freedom in the KID and Pirc.
Now white has to make a decision about how to defend the e-pawn. Usually he plays 3. But 1. It gives Black more choices too, which is why a lot of people like it. Nc3 Bg7. Or for that matter, pretty much anything White plays after 1. The Pirc and KID are complimentary: the first can be used against 1. As a GM said, below the master level all openings are playable.
The key is to find something you like. F-pawn breaks are very common in the KID, pretty common in the Pirc, and I would guess less common in the other two. I feel I was generalizing too much, and in some places incorrectly. I realize that any opening I play will be fine enough, but I want to avoid major traps and getting into bad positions everytime. Dec ganstaman : Well, the Pirc can be scary to play as black. Watch me almost get crushed. Be3 O-O 6. Bc4 c6 7. Nxe4 8.
Bb3 a5 9. Perhaps I should have. Nxe5 Qxe5 Qb6 Ng7 Black apparently forgot how the pieces move -- fianchettoed knight, nearly imprisoned queen, and 3 untouched queenside pieces. Then you see that black is up a knight. Next you see that white will win back the knight with mate on g7.
Nf5 Qh4 Nxh6 Nc6 loses to Rxe6, right? Re3 Nxb3 Qh4 Qf6 I survived and won! Rxe7 or Qxb7 Bxb7 Thanks for pointing those out though. Maybe I just need to get in
