Oct-07-05  DutchDunce: Is this the guy who came up with the "Pribyl defense" (grows out of the Caro-Kann, e4-c6-d4-d6)? I remember Kasparov played it against Deep Blue and managed to draw with it.

  Gypsy: Chessmetrics Player Profile: Josef Pribyl (*1947-Oct) Best World Rank: #91, Highest Rating: 2593 (October 1976), Best Individual Performance: 2621 (Majdanpek, 1976).

<DutchDunce> Yes, that is him. His forte was opening theory.

May-21-08  Chessman100: It's just strange that so many coaches don't do as good as their students...
Dec-01-08  melianis: I had the impression the "Priblyl defense" was in the French like this. Lu Wei vs Xia Yu, 2001 I'll stand corrected.

  GrahamClayton: The development of the Queen early in the Pribyl System with 4. ... Qa5 threatens 5. ... Ne4, with pressure on c3. 5 e5 would result in 5. ... Ne4 being played anyway.
