The c6/d6 setup gives unmatchable solidarity to Black’s position. You don’t have to commit to any particular structure yet. And do get creative with your pawn breaks and the queen.

The Czech Pirc transposes to the same tabiya more or less. Whether White starts with 1.e4 or 1.d4, it almost always gets to the above position nonetheless.

Cotton on the fundamental ideas of the opening. Add a few hours of practice. And you can execute it like a pro in your next game.

GM Misa Pap’s Czech Pirc is a 3-hour-long training on the most VITAL lines in the opening where Black can turn the table on White with killer plans, ingenious move sequences, and fatal tactical surprises.

What You Will Learn:

  • Tempo gains. …Bc5+ waiting to strike. Black will prob castle long. Once the White queen grabs the pawn on f4, Black will rain hellfire on White. On the 18th move, White made a mistake and played Nd4?! GM Pap tells you what the right move should have been, and why.
  • Natural sucks. Not every move needs to feel good. Instead, go for the less obvious – the one that hits your opponent right in the gut. What’s a better move though? Discover how a simple pawn break can solidify your position up one level.
  • Pawn-breaks wisdom. In the Czech Pirc, pawn breaks matter a lot. Do it the right way… and you can make your opponent feel real pain. Do it the wrong way… and he simply crushes you. Wait! Why not let a GM train you first?
