    Empire Chess Volume 19

     

    This chess DVD covers one of the most dynamic openings ever played – the King’s Indian Defense! The King’s Indian Defense is the perfect opening weapon against 1. d4 for players who naturally display a tactical and dynamic style. This system is immensely popular at all levels because it gives black excellent winning chances against 1. d4. There are very few drawish lines in the King’s Indian Defense – the vast majority of the resulting middelgames are extremely double-edged and decisive results are overwhelmingly common. However, playing the King’s Indian Defense requires a definite element of risk as black tries to develop a dangerous attack against white’s king while making certain strategic concessions (white gains greater space in the center and long-term attacking prospects on the queenside). This may sound dangerous, but the King’s Indian Defense has been tested extensively at the highest levels of chess and continues to be employed by numerous Grandmasters in today’s game. Famous advocates of the KID include Bobby Fischer, David Bronstein, Garry Kasparov, Hikaru Nakamura, Teimour Radjabov, Vassily Ivanchuk, etc.. – fully proving the reliability of this opening system.

The Bogo-Indian is the position arising after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 is common. The traditional move for White here is 3.Nc3, threatening to set up a big pawn centre with 4.e4. However, 3.Nf3 is often played instead as a way of avoiding the Nimzo-Indian Defense (which would follow after 3.Nc3 Bb4). After 3.Nf3, Black usually plays 3...b6 (TheQueen’s Indian Defense ) or 3...d5 (leading to the Queen’s Gambit Declined), but can instead play 3...Bb4+, which is The Bogo-Indian
