King's Indian Attack

Flip board

    The theory is better to learn. I usually do 3. Bg2 4. O-O 5. D3 6. C4. Play from there. Develops everything and gives powerful centre grab

    Playin' d white, is the next move going to be B-f2 ??!

    Then white castles to g1........!! Is that going to be a good defense, I doubt about it !!

    I like the knight move, but not the pawn.

    Moving the knight first gives you a chance to see what your opponent will do, before committing your pawns.

    I have been using this a lot lately.

    p.s. I tried to run the spell check and it didn't work.

    I personally like KIA, it protects the White's king pretty good, never make the move e4 if it will be fixed in that position, the light square bishop will be a bad piece. In the position after White castled, I prefer that you immediately fight in the center. In any case, the king is well protected, however, if your opponent starts a kingside attack, secure your position ASAP.

    I am a bit new to this opening, but I understand the bottom strategy.

    groodyandruff vs. Computer - Hard
    First time trying this opening | Chess.com | 23 Oct 2014 | 0-1
    on this first game i saw 19.cxd5 could've been 19.Kb2, blocking the escape route for computer hard loosing two pawns but getting one bishop advantage.
    any other perspectives on that?

    HaveAnotherGame, I play against Shredder and it uses this d5 move a lot.

    It's the Scandinavian Defense. Just put "chess e4 d5 Wiki" and you'll see.

    I do 2. e4xd5 and then comes the black Queen on her own. She can create a lot of problems, but not with d5. If she moves too much, she looses time. Then comes a bishop and it may sacrifice to open my defense, etc.

    It is a good move if preparing to castle

    I get it. All 4 bishops are on the same colors.

    I'm getting back into chess after getting decent, about 750, and I'm trying to learn more strategy. I tried this opening and I want advice on the game.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for telling this opening-attack is good for beginners. I will give it a good try and study it with care. I started to study THE LONDON SYSTEM, which has some similarities, but this one is more compacted, with more pieces placed at strategic points,more able to defend, it seems.
