Kindred’s Special: ON THE OPENING by Donald P. Reithel

There is no real substitute for collecting for review as many games of a particular opening you want to play yourself from either side.  One of my correspondents years ago asked, “I play the Pirc. My question is: How do I handle the defense in the spirit of the opening after, 1. e4  d6  2. d4  Nf6  3. Bd3 that my opponent played?  In checking with MCO, the move is given with conclusion of being too committal, mentioning 3. … g6  4. Ne2  Bg7  5. O-O  O-O  6. Nd2  e5 =.

If World Champion Emmanuel Lasker’s axiom holds merit, 3. Nc3  g6  4. Nf3 is logical with good chances for both sides after 4. … Bg7 5. Be2 keeping pressure on the center while preserving square count options.

An interesting game offers a good example of a positional treatment of handling both sides.  White:  Ken Rogoff  vs.  Black:  Palacious   Opening:  Pirc Defense

1. e4  d6  2. d4  Nf6  3. Nc3  g6  4. Nf3

This move has remained popular but the Austrian Attack by  4. f4 tends to offer an aggressive approach aimed at gaining square count.

4. …Bg7  5. Be2  O-O  6. O-O  c6

6…Bg4 is a good alternative.  Both vie for good position and chances.

7. a4

Shades of Alekhine!  This prevents possible …b5 while giving White more scope on the Q-side, plus s/c.

7. …Nbd7  8. Rel  e5  9. Bf1!

This move keeps the diagonal under guard while adding Rook protection of e4 and future influence on the e-file.

9. … Re8?

Black should restrict White’s a-pawn with the idea of holding e5 by Re8 and Qc7 by gaining s/c with 9….a5! Now, he will suffer because the advanced pawn will be a thorn in his side and open up more s/c.

10. a5!  exd4  11. Nxd4  Nc5  12. f3  d5  13. e5  Nfd7 14. f4  f6  15. e6  Nf8

Black has aided the 2-time US Junior Champion by weakening  the central complex of squares.

How do you further turn the screws in Black’s coffin? When you have your opponent discouraged, smash the pawn structure to pieces!

16. f5!  gxf5  17. a6!  Nxa6  18. Bxa6  bxa6  19. Nxf5  Qb6+  20. Nd4  Rxe6  21. Be3  Re5  22. Nxf5 Qe6  23. Nxg7  Kxg7 24. Qd2  Bb7  25, Bd4  Rxe1+  26. Rxe1  Qd6  27. Rf1  Nd7  28. Ne4  Resigns. (1-0).

Kenneth Rogoff eventually went on to win the coveted title of Grandmaster and represented the USA both in international tournaments and on USA student teams.  He graduated Yale and went to work for the World Bank as an economist, and often appears on TV news interviews.
