Many players are in search of a weapon against King’s Indian. The system with h3, which offers White many tactical possibilities, has been proven to be quite successful in practice. White scores a solid 60 percent of all points. Theory, however, neglects this set-up. The standard opening books about the King’s Indian either fail to mention the move h3 or only give it a cursory treatment. In the past, players such as Bent Larsen and Lubomir Kavalek used to employ this system regularly, and today renowned grandmasters such as Michal Krasenkow, Evgeeny Baarev, Vassily Iwanchuk, Alexander Beliavsky like to advance their h-pawn with success. World champion Kasparov, Anand and Kramnik have tried this system with good results.
On this CD Martin Breutigam provides  a comprehensive introduction to this attractive opening. In 18 texts Breutigam explains  it basic ideas and analyses the most important variations. Thus, this CD offers both an easy CD-to-learn introduction and the first in-depth theoretical analysis of this system. 130 illustrative games, a lot of them annotated, demonstrate the most important strategies for both sides. A training database invites you to check your knowledge.
