      Dominate with the King's Indian Defense 6… Na6 System - EMPIRE CHESS
      The King`s Indian Defense is one of the most popular chess opening systems ever played due to the naturally dynamic and double-edged positions that frequently arise. Since the early 20th century the King`s Indian Defense has been regularly employed at the highest levels of chess by legendary names like David Bronstein, Bobby Fischer, and Garry Kasparov to name a few. However the King`s Indian Defense has experienced a slight decline in popularity in recent years due to the hyper-aggressive Bayonet Attack (used by the white pieces and commonly seen by players like Anand and Kramnik.) But many KID die-hard fans have not lost heart, and neither should you! The KID is alive and kicking, and one of this exciting opening`s leading proponents – GM Eugene Perelshteyn – has produced an action-packed chess DVD to explain his battle-tested secrets in a relatively new sideline that starts with 6. …Na6.
