First, it's a little confusing what kind of opening we have here. According to, this is a Rat Defense / Pillsbury Defense, which I think just means 1.d4 d6.

But SCID recognizes it as a transposition into a Pirc Czech (B07o - 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3).

Using Opening Explorer, 4...Qa5 is only seen 17 times (58.8% / 23.5% / 17.6% ). Of course the engines don't like this position for Black.

The opening is worth study for understanding the mistakes both sides make. It is difficult to actually realize the advantages which the engine assigns long before material can be won.

I'll defer such discussion for the moment, and present a simple little puzzle from the end of the game here:

(Pre-move: 21.Nc5-d7 Qb8-b7)
