Product Description

80/20 Tactics Multiplier #03

If you want to know an opening, you should be familiar with its typical positional ideas and remember the most important theoretical lines. But this is not enough.

Every opening has its own stock of tactical motives. Therefore, you also have to know the typical tactical patterns which frequently recur in your opening.

GM Bryan Smith’s course on the essential tactics in the King’s Indian Defense gives you a complete understanding of typical tactical patterns for both sides. Even if you only play the King’s Indian as Black, it’s important to know the opportunities available to White so you can prevent them!

The KID is a complex and rewarding opening where White enjoys more space but Black has a number of surprising methods to lay siege to the enemy position, often resulting in brilliant wins.

GM Bryan Smith explains the mechanics behind some of the most powerful tactics in Grandmaster play before giving detailed commentary on 2 of his own games.

The result is an elevated understanding of the typical tactical and strategic themes of the King’s Indian Defense, which you can test and strengthen with the included quizzes!
