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).
