Kotronias on the King's Indian - Volume 4
Classical SystemsProduct Code: B0122QT
The King's Indian Defense is one of Black's most dynamic responses to 1.d4. A favorite weapon of both Fischer and Kasparov, it remains a popular choice at all levels of play. In this, the fourth volume of the epic Kotronias on the King's Indian series, Grandmaster Vassilios Kotronias tackles a variety of White's attempts to challenge his favorite opening, starting with the sequence 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg74.e4 d6.
The all-time greats Petrosian and Gligoric lend their names to systems examined after the further 5.Nf30 O-O 6.Be2 e5, with 7.d5 and 7.Be3 respectively, while the dreaded Exchange Variation 7.dxe5 is also discussed and dismantled. Dynamic coverage of Makogonov's 5.Nf3/6.h3, Karpov's 5.h3/6.Be3, Larsen's 5.Nf3/6.Be3 and Averbakh's 5.Be2 completes this extensive work.
Throughout the work, the author shares his considerable knowledge of typical positional motifs,while providing plenty of ammunition should the game erupt into the full-blooded warfare that is the hallmark of the King's Indian. A special selection of test positions is provided, enabling the reader to sharpen his tactical skills and improve his middle game understanding.
