KID and Pirc?
Is there any significant differences in how to handle the black side of these two openings? What I mean is if white plays 1d4 and black replys 1...Nf6 thinking he's playing the KID and then white plays 2.Nc3.. In affect by setting up his KID setup he will in fact be playing the Pirc due to the abcence of a white pawn on c4. If The black player is quite familiar with the KID but doesn't really have the pirc in his repetoire could he run into any problems?

On 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 black can play 2....d5 with equal play, but they need's to know what are they playing.

A kind of transposition to the Grunfeld defence perhaps?

1. d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 has no resemblance to the Grunfeld (1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 d5). Look at the two positions--there's no way to transpose between them.

1. d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 is some of the sideline classical queen's pawn opening stuff (1. d4 d5 2. Nc3 Nf6). There's 3. e4 with an attempt to get into Blackmar-Diemar Gambit-type situations (although, really, the positions are rather different), and I believe 3. Bf4 or 3. Bg5. The positions are nothing like the KID, the Pirc, or the Grunfeld. I suppose you could simply transpose into the Pirc with 1. d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 g6 3. e4 d6 or some such, but most people would play 2... d5 for the equality (how is White going to get in a c4-pawn advantage to challenge Black's d5-pawn, for instance? He's going to have to get e4 in to challenge d5 and then try to gain the upper hand through active piece play).
