Pirc Defence[edit]

3...g6[edit]

Black continues with his hypermodern plan of fianchettoing the bishop to pressure White's center. The bishop creates a masked attack on d4, and also helps to control the center. White still has yet to make a decision about his center, and he will do so with his next move.
