Pirc Defence 150 Attack vs Qbroot

The Pirc Defence is fully playable for Black, even if not as sharp a the Sicilian Dragon or King's Indian Defence. I like playing White. In the Pirc Defence White gets to play both 1.e4 and 2.d4 without immediate hassle. Black will strike back, but it takes a little time. Also White's Nc3 development is faster with the c-pawn on c2 instead of c4.

When I took up the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, I needed something against both 1.d4 Nf6 and the Pirc Defence. Then I stumbled on 2.f3 where play might continue 2...g6 3.e4 d6 4.Nc3 Bg7 5.Be3. Play continues like the 150 Attack. Here against a player using the handle Qbroot, I ended up with a good position and managed to win.
