I lost 3 games i played agaisnt kIA as black.. my fav with black is french and yet was taken to cleaners. It made me study but still against a skillful opponent it is difficult to defend king side. Problem with blitz is more acute as there are many threats and combinations u often overlook to ur peril
But this blocks in the bishop
Cant just bring the white bishop out Dallas. Bc4 or Bb5 you'll be harrassed and pushed around losing alot of time in the opening. Besides this opening is called the Kings indian attack. White bishop will be on g2.
why does everyone act like this is some revelation??? it's incredibly simple...not taking anything away from it but it's not new or mind-boggling...I've been playing chess 3 months and this was my original opening out of logic without any teaching...and yes, the bishop should be moved out first so as not to block it in...
Ñow this the opening I can try on an average beginner and get away with it. Lil
This is a mystery and worthwhile studying opening~
I think Stonewall's Defense is quite better
Seems a little pointless.
If the white bishop comes out first, then black plays d5 and you're forced to give up your center control by capturing with your e pawn and then lose tempo when black recaptures.
Seems like a great opening... I was trying a different french opening that wasn't working for me.
It was mentioned above that the white bishop is blocked in, what does everyone think about moving the bishop out after the first pawn move to c4, and then parking it on b3?
I like this kind of openings!!
Love it! It allows white to establish a good pawn chain early in the game
i agree with chauncy. I might use this.
I like this opening though I sometimes get irritated bcoz my white bishop is blocked
