Beware when there is a sacrifice move
I like these puzzles, but they are a bit challenging
that's good for both sides as the prove see the match v.smyslov vs m.botvinnik
I dont like the symmetrical idea. I think it is to much of a copy pattern.
A strange opening.
There is a very interesting variation here in which White plays 3.b4 called the Extended Fianchetto, Reti/Smyslov variation. Smyslov played it 19 times including a world championship game vs Botvinnik. With it, he logged 12 wins 7 draws and 0 losses; defeating the likes of Gufeld and Korchnoi.
i dont know about this one i need a good opening to play give me some ideas
:D çok saçma
Kings Indian is solid but study the French Agesr it e3
I use the French def because it has a good c5 out and queen sac if I know how to do it
The idea of slow positional play is easily applied to both sides of the board. It can transpose into any of several lines, depending on your preferences. Me? I like the Accelaerated Dragon, and this is a possible transposition into the closed game.
I have only just begun experimenting with using White as a King's Indian game, and, my bungling aside, it suits my nature. I am not a fast thinker...I suppose a few have found that out and pounded me into the ground like a tent stake...but, I have found that it isn't easy to break through EITHER side. There seem to be few replies available in a lot of cases, which can be a good thing or not... Develop one's QB through an opposing fianchetto, develop via after a QP move, or, maneuvering around the Bishop leaving it statically guarding the b Pawn. Then the consideration of the Knights is also minimalized, though opposit of the fianchettoed Bishop, Na3 (or Na6) is another exiting point with either b5 (4) in mind or to c2 (c7) guarding agaist incursions via Q side.
The idea of simplifying the game like that eases planning. Although, dang! I HAVE walked into some serious minefields, before, too. From BOTH sides of the King's Indian.
Opinionated, aren't I?
no... just a friendly chess enthusiast!
I played with a child at the club today and he did that. That was confusing. I don't know if he is a really good player because I'm not good myself, but he said always played that or the modern reti as white. So I guess it's a good answer to the classical reti, at least if it can confuse others as much as me...
It's a strange defense for black...
Petrosian once said that he paid his rent wih the King's Indian. I think he was talking about the White side however. Joel Lautier once toasted "may fool hardy players Black players continue to venture it!" I'm on two very difficult games trying to "venture" because the truth is that KID is do or die and that's fun sometimes!
