King's Indian Defense belongs to the Indian Defense family of openings and is characterised by the early fianchetoeing of the black dark-squared bishop on g7. It is a sharp opening and it has always been a very popular choice for black ever since its introduction in top-level competitive chess in the mid-20th century.

    On Kasparov's game the opponent is Anatoli Karpov. Sorry for the typo.

    well... kasparov did stop using the KID against kramnik.   maybe its been figured out, and even Geller and oldie said its no good.

    In the Thomason vs Fisher game, on the move 21. Qxf4, did Tomason not see the knight fork coming on the next move?

    Learning

    The King's Indian Defence is my main defence against the queen's pawn opening. The defence has good reputation among the club players like I am. Still, it's a sharp system, and it will guarantee a high tension game, witch is called fun for most chessplayers. I would recommend the system to anyone wanting to learn how to come up with  plans or tactics to over-throw your opponent, in witch is my favorite part of using this system.
