Dominating 1.d4 with the King`s Indian Defense
The Kings Indian Defense (KID) is the perfect weapon against 1.d4 for players who like to play for a win with both colors.
A hypermodern opening, Black allows White to get a formidable center and then attacks it from the flanks. Characterized the potentially very strong Bishop on g7 and an early ... d6, the King’s Indian has stood the test of time, being a favorite of both Bobby Fischer’s and Garry Kasparov’s.
Black is able to get a powerful Kingside attack going by advancing his f-pawn to f4, bringing his pieces over to the Kingside and often sacrificing material to checkmate White’s King.
Alongside the tactical themes, there are many positional considerations to be aware of and IM Jorge Ferreira reveals all of these as he guides you through 14 different variations, pointing out the common elements and the important distinctions.
Careful study of this 4 hour course will fully prepare you to play the Kings Indian with complete confidence and get excellent positions every time.
