The Video Encyclopedia of Chess Openings Vol#3 – The King’s Indian Defense – GM Damian Lemos
The King’s Indian Defense is a popular opening choice at all levels and is the choice of players looking to win as Black against 1.d4.
The reason for this is that many positions in the King’s Indian Defense promise Black more active play than in most other openings. Black is able to avoid early simplifications and can enter unbalanced positions, which allows him to play for more than equality.
From club players to Super-GMs like Hikaru Nakamura, Teimour Radjabov or Garry Kasparov, you regularly see this opening arising on the chessboard.
