Pirc Defence

In the Pirc Defence, we come up against a second opening in which Black does not start by moving a pawn to the fifth rank. Instead of that he plans, by means of ...d6, ...Nf6, the bishop fianchetto ...g6, ...Bg7 and ...0-0, to adopt a formation similar to one in the King’s Indian, one of the most popular openings against 1.d4. The Pirc or the Pirc-Ufimtsev Defence goes back to the 1940s, making it even more recent than the Alekhine Defence; it takes its name from the Yugoslavian master Vasja Pirc (1907–1980) and Soviet master from Kazakhstan Anatoly Ufimtsev (1914–2000).

The Modern Pirc
The Modern Pirc
by Viktor Bologan
The Modern Pirc is actually a mixture of the Caro-Kann and the Pirc. In many lines Black combines the ideas of the classical Pirc in which the fianchettoed bishop is important with the Caro-Kann idea to fight for the center with c6-d5.

Play the Pirc like a Grandmaster Vol. 1: Positional lines
by Mihail Marin
