Hiarcs book recommends 5. .. c6, and then if White tries to transpose to the game line via 6. f3 b5 7. O-O-O h5 8. h4, Black has .. Nbd7, still delaying castling. But the Pirc is still just bad for Black, IMO, and in a computer book I would avoid it altogether.

So playing 1.a3 would be one good option against Stockfish?
