This disk is a perfect tool for players looking for a complicated battle against 1.d4. The author suggests the King’s Indian Defence and shows with a number of examples how realistic Black’s chances are in this opening to get a complex structure with the most serious attacking potential. Apart from theoretical information, the disk also contains structural insights and an array of ideas which will enable you to include this opening into your repertoire - immediately and with tangible success! The extended 2nd edition is based principally on games which have been played in the last three years with, as Black, either the author himself or top King’s Indian expert Teimor Radjabov. This has resulted in the creation of a work on the King’s Indian which not only gives deep insights into the variations and plans but also presents the most up-to-date state of affairs in this dynamic and active opening. Video running time: 7 hours.

The characteristic of the King’s Indian is the fianchetto of Black’s king’s bishop in conjunction with ...Nf6 and ...d6. Black allows White to march forward in the centre with his c-, d- and e-pawns and only lays claim to his share of the centre later on with ...e5 or ...c5. The popularity of the King’s Indian was due first of all to the games of the Soviet grandmasters Isaac Boleslavsky (1919–1977) and David Bronstein (1924–2006). The first heyday of the King’s Indian was in the 1950s and 1960s when Bobby Fischer too played it. At the end of the 1980s the most prominent exponent of the King’s Indian was Garry Kasparov, a position which has nowadays been occupied by Teimour Radjabov.=> More products: King's Indian Defence
