The Pirc Defence by Mihail Marin

The Pirc is more of a counterattack than a defence: Black allows his opponent to occupy the centre and provokes a confrontation, trusting in the power of the g7-bishop and the dynamic potential in his position. It is the perfect weapon for players who seek a complex strategic fight with the black pieces.

Mihail Marin has been playing the Pirc for more than twenty years, with excellent results. In The Pirc Defence he not only presents his best analysis against all of White’s major options, but also shares the strategic insights he has gained through his extensive experience in this opening.

Mihail Marin is a grandmaster from Romania. His previous books for Quality Chess have established him as one of the world’s finest chess authors.

Praise for the author’s previous work:
“Beautifully written and inspirational” – GM Luke McShane
“A typically lucid and thorough exposition from perhaps the most insightful and reliable chess author writing today.” – GM Jonathan Rowson, New in Chess

ISBN: 978-1-78483-041-0 - 408 pages - Published 2 November 2017

Reviews

“Marin has a calm, serious, pedagogic writing style. In his script you’ll find regular comments on the context, history and relevance of various move orders and strategic ideas. All this purveys a lasting impression that he really knows his subject matter. Indeed, many of the key games and innovative ideas involve Marin’s work at the board or emanate from his homework.

Those who know and remember Marin’s English Opening trilogy will recognise in the text his reliance on strategic and tactical explanations to get his message across. It lightens and enlightens the overall reading experience.

A convincing repertoire, with lots of original high-class input, and a highly professional publication.”
