5.0 étoiles sur 5 La perfection à portée de main 30 avril 2008
Par Nad
Format:Broché
Bonjour,

J'ai commencé la pirc il y a à peu près 1 an. Après avoir subi de lourdes défaites, j'ai remis en cause cette ouverture qui est peu jouée à très haut niveau. J'ai essayé le Française puis la Caro Kahn, sans grand succès.

Alors j'ai décidé de me remettre à la Pirc mais cette fois-ci, avec des munitions : un bon bouquin.

Après avoir eu de bons échos sur le Pirc Alert, je me lance.

Et là, je découvre à quel point ce livre est fabuleux !!!

- Des plans clairs et indispensables sur fond bleu qu'on ne peut ne pas remarquer
- Des idées sur la manière de jouer pièces et pions dans principaux plans
- Des diagrammes très fréquents permettant de lire le livre sans avoir besoin d'échiquier à côté
- Toute la théorie sur la pirc à la fin du livre (+ quelques nouveautés)
- Des explications claires, des exemples de parties très intéressants et des exercices sur les points à absolument retenir.

En bref, un puissant concentré de tout ce qu'il faut connaitre de la pirc.

Et mes résultats avec les noirs sur e4 s'en ressentent !

Il est tout simplement INDISPENSABLE pour tout joueur de pirc (ou joueur affrontant la pirc)

Excellent livre, très didactique ce qui est rare pour un livre d'échecs et qui plus est sur une ouverture. L'auteur est un spécialiste de la variante ce qui est un gage de qualité.

Ce livre est tout simplement indispensable pour tout joueur de pirc qui se respecte.
Les idées sont clairement expliquées et approfondies, les variantes à la fois simples et complètes.
Je possède ce livre depuis bientôt 10 ans et je n'ai toujours rien trouvé de mieux concernant la pirc.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Opening book you have been waiting for. 12 avril 2001
Par "ghoulahan" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is one of the best opening books I have ever read. I bought this book to keep up on ideas for white in the Pirc, but now I'm thinking of switching from my favored Sicilian and giving it a try as black.
I own over 600 chess books including a bunch on the Pirc. This one stands out head and shoulders above the rest.
A considerable amount of time is spent on the theory of the opening. At last someone is willing to tell us what it takes years to figure out. What the reasons are behind all of the moves and variations. The reasons are given in plain English with numerous diagrams to point out the various motifs.
Then after an extensive discussion of opening theory, the authors cover the actual moves and variations and include a large number of opening novelties.
This is the way all opening books should be designed. I can hardly wait for their next one

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best opening books I have read... 21 août 2001
Par David H. Small - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is one of the finest opening books I have read. First a warning. The Pirc defence is not for the novice. The defence is complex, subtle, fluid and requires a high degree of positional understanding and defensive skill. It is one of the most complex responses to 1. e4 that Black can play. From this perspective it is amazing that the authors have written such a lucid book. Lev Alburt's didactic approach is enhanced by Alex Chernin's specialist knowledge. The end product is a superb book. I have read hundreds of opening books, but this ranks as one of the best, if not THE best. You will understand the Pirc defence after reading this book. While not every variation is covered, most are covered more than enough for the average club hacker. If you are below FIDE 2200 you will benefit from this book. However, having said that, I am not convinced that the class C to low B player should adopt this opening. But, if you like complex positions with plenty of room for originality and fluctuating pawn structures... go for it. You wont get a better guide than this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Best opening book I have ever read 27 septembre 2001
Par Roland Arajs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
For context, I'm a class C player with an estimated USCF rating somewhere between 1500 and 1600.
This is a book for the player who wants to understand the ideas behind the opening; not just recommended lines to be remembered by rote. The ideas include white's plans and possible counter-plans for black. It describes good plans and warns about plans to avoid.
The book is split into 3 parts:
1. How to use the book
2. General ideas and plans based on pawn structures that arise in the Pirc, and the role of individual pieces during the execution of those plans
3. Variations that are recommended for black for each of white's major options. This section of the book starts each section with diagrams of important positions to be remembered, and ends with diagrams showing critical positions and the best move for white or black.
The whole presentation of the material makes it obvious that the authors have years of experience in the field of chess training.
So, if I think the book is so good, why did I give it a 4-star rating instead of 5? Minor quibbles really:
1. The subtitle "A complete Defense Against 1. e4" is misleading. It could be the heart of a complete defense but, for one or two lines, the reader is referred to using another defense not covered in the book.
2. The general ideas given in Part 2 could have done with a little more context. In particular, you have to refer forward to Part 3 to find out why black cannot always use the "preferred" pawn structure where black gets the easiest play.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Left Uppercut/Left Jab Combination: a Complete System of Self-Defense 25 octobre 2009
Par V - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
There's something about the Pirc and Robatsch (Modern) defenses that inspires almost cultish allegiance in some chess players. Having experienced the allure myself, I've acquired every book I can on either defense. "PIRC ALERT!" is the best treatment of its subject I've encountered to date, but I nevertheless agree with almost all the limiting comments of the other Amazon reviewers.

One reviewer criticizes "PIRC ALERT!" for its failure to cover variations in which White deviates from the standard 2) P-Q4. I sympathize. The authors seemingly presume that readers enjoy a sufficiently high level of chess competence that it's unnecessary to illustrate how the defense can exploit eccentricity by White within the first two or three moves; and precisely for this reason the motivation behind the opening's specific moves---for both sides---remains unexposited. That White WILL play 2) P-Q4 in the Pirc/Robatsch, I suspect, is taken as IMPLIED by basic chess principles emphasizing control of the playing board's center, so that the authors, if pressed, would most likely claim that 2) P-Q4 is virtually mandated by Black's forbearance to play a pawn immediately to the 5th rank. Hence, the authors give short shrift to early deviations in the Pirc/Robatsch probably because they expect such deviations to occur only in (1) low-level play or (2) cases where a strong player is determined to avoid the opening(s) altogether.

No one who has followed the fortunes of the Pirc/Robatsch defenses in international tournaments since the 1970s will be greatly encouraged. They don't fare well at the highest levels of play. What's more, in Grand Master games Black is almost always flummoxed when White introduces a novelty, after which it seems to require YEARS of analysis before an equalizing line for Black is found. This is vividly illustrated by the history of Black's response to the Austrian Attack.

"PIRC ALERT!" and other books of its ilk tend to minimize how very, very difficult it can be to play the Pirc/Robatsch defenses successfully against even moderately strong opposition. Yeah, yeah, I know: when you come right down to it, NO chess opening is easy. Still, careful examination of "PIRC ALERT!" (and other books on the subject, as well) will confirm that in the Pirc/Robatsch it's much easier to play White than to play Black: in almost every variation Black ends up fighting for his life right from the get-go; in position after position, White has several playable alternatives, whereas Black has only ONE. Take note of how many lines oblige Black to forgo castling. And by all means, check out the Classical System. Given the Pirc/Robatsch's broad strategic rationale, one would think that THIS, surely, is an opening by White that Black's defense is ideally poised to exploit. But nothing could be further from the truth. The Classical System provides some of White's strongest variations.

So, there's an important moral that the authors of "PIRC ALERT!" don't state but which nevertheless can be gleaned from the book's text: difficult indeed is a defense that regularly commits Black to an unbroken sequence of BEST moves in order to equalize.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent, except for one thing... 31 août 2004
Par Douglas B. Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I spent about 3 months going through this entire book and it really helped to improve my game as Black. I have several opening books and this is by far the best one. I would be shocked to find a better book on the Pirc or any other opening.

There is one very irritating shortcoming, though. The book only considers White's supposedly best 2nd move, d4, and offers little help for games where White does something else, like, say, d3. This causes problems for variations like Be3 (followed by Qd2 and a kingside attack), where the theoretical variation focuses on counterattacking the pawn center by ...c6, ...b5 (threatening b4), etc. If the evil white player plays d3, this plan is absolutely futile, and the basic plan by White is unchanged, leaving Black with no apparent plan (I came up with one later on my own -- after I got my butt stomped...). As an intermediate player, I see nonstandard openings by White in almost every game. There needs to be more discussion about how to play against the common nonstandard things that White can do. It seems that Pirc Alert and the other opening books (the others are FAR worse at this also) spend a great deal of time dealing with what to do against the enemy's best moves, but not very much effort on how to exploit nonstandard moves.

This is still a great book. I own about 10 chess books at this point, covering most of the major areas of the game, and this is the best of all my books. I just have the one little gripe listed above.

One aspect that I don't usually see in these reviews is physical quality. The is a very well-made book and has taken a tremendous amount of punishment from me with no sign of coming apart. The diagrams, paper quality, binding strength, print quality, etc are all excellent. Several of my other books are already threatening to come apart and I haven't spent half the time with them as Pirc Alert. The book would be less effective as a long-term opening manual if it did not possess these qualities.
