Product Description

The engines do NOT understand this opening. Why?

  • Black allows White to build up his center advantage
  • Black fianchettoes his bishop and blocks it with e5-pawn
  • Black shuffles pieces to give White gain in tempi.

It surely goes against common sense, right?

Then why do so many of the world’s greatest players choose the King’s Indian?

Tal, Fischer, and Kasparov — we call them GOAT!

More recently, Nakamura, Svidler, Radjabov, and Ding Liren. (Again 2700+ players in question.)

And they win. Consistently… and often spectacularly.

What’s the mystery here? It’s because the King’s Indian Defense is like a coiled cobra ready to strike at a moment’s notice… landing a nasty bite on the enemy king, and White would end up paralyzed to “death”.

But to play it, you need to learn it.

That’s where IM Marcin Sieciechowicz’s 10 hour video training that unravels this beautiful opening for you in all its glory.

Starting from the Petrosian system to the Averbakh system to the Bayonet Attack, he takes each variation and decodes it move by move.

Here’s what you would learn:

  • Four pawns attack. White intends to push the f-pawn forward. Without hiding his intentions, he goes for it. Very sharp, and totally open position! Learn how to play it as Black.
  • Kingside attack in Samisch. Ponomariav, as Black, pushed the h-pawn forward against Tomashevsky. Was that a mistake? Or, the Nge5 move was a little dicey? Let Sieciechowicz tell you.
  • Central lock in Petrosian. Learn how Kasparov went for a flank attack instead and rolled over White’s king protection. Piece by piece, move by move… with a dark square bishop exchange.
  • Opposite castling. White usually goes for full-on action. Tough to handle when all those kingside pawns are heading towards your king. See how Nakamura does it against Rodshtein.
  • No central lock? A tough position to handle—the dark-square bishop gains control of the long diagonal but White is far ahead in development. Does Black have any play? If yes, how?

This training includes access to the practicum where you can test your new knowledge, PLUS the PGN files with all variations.
