There are many supposedly promising systems to play against the King's Indian and so the question arises: which one to choose? However, once one comes to actually play these good ideas, it becomes obvious that it is not so simple after all. The elastic King's Indian continues to offer dangerous counterplay and resists all attempts at refutation. The suggestion of the Sämisch Variation with 6.Bg5 is put before you on this 60 mins video. White's system is active, relatively easy to play, cramping and full of variety. White builds up systematically behind the rock-like Sämisch pawn formation and can play on either side of the board according to Black's reaction. Black does not have the same range of responses as he does against 6.Be3 so he is to a degree being limited. Last but not least, 6.Bg5 always leads to a complex, interesting position. It can be recommended!

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
