Book Description The King's Indian Attack was a firm favourite of the legendary Bobby Fischer, and more recently it has been utilised with great success by world-class Grandmasters such as Alexander Morozevich. The renowned chess coach Mark Dvoretsky regards the King's Indian Attack as a perfect weapon on which to base an opening repertoire. Its great advantage over other openings is that is a thematic system that can be employed against many different lines, while the emphasis is on the understanding of ideas rather than the dry memorisation of moves. The King's Indian Attack leads to rich middlegame positions that are full of dynamic possibilities for both sides.
