At 16:02, can't black play Bg4?
Nice vid , plays w3ell with '9, b4 main line with chess mentor
Very interesting and I liked the explanations, easy to follow and illuminating. This c5 idea is good to know and the typical Nf4 response leads to some unpleasantness for Black. ...f5 instead looks more palatable, which leads to a game with mutual chances in my analysis. I also looked at ...h6, but Black seemed to have problems here. Anyway, after the opening, I thought both sides played very well. Perhaps Black could have maximized resistance by keeping things closed after he played f6 although probably too many weaknesses in the position. In any case, White had the better pieces and could expect to make further progress via the a -file or by targeting d6. A clever effort by both players and an enjoyable lecture.
@vladiminduce: after 25...Ree8? 26.Rc7 gives white a major advantage, for example 26... Rxc7 bxc7 and now there is no stopping Bb6, and Rd1-d8. Since black cannot take on c7, then something like 26...Rb8 leaves white with much more active pieces and a great game, probably winning.
Black has blundered in a fairly drawish line to allow this though. For example, 25...Rec6 is a much better move that should draw, and rybka says 24...Rd6 (with Rad8 coming) is completely equal.
ps. Nice video, very useful for me. Where can I find the forum for game discussion? That sounds interesting.
You going into commonly questioned lines make you very unique and a remarkable video maker =]
Very well exposed. Thank you.
Great session. Thank you so much!!!
You know, I do use 1.c4 to keep out the Gruenfeld, and that is a nice little nuance of this presentation.
Another very significant theme that runs through this approach is White's willingness to part with the dark squared Bishop. This is the kind of decision that I'd never make OTB because it's a bit antithetic to a principled approach to White's side of a King's Indian. Opening preparation is the place to make decisions that you couldn't make during play.
I'll have to try this.
hi there mark. great video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i was wondering if you could give me some advice on improving my game? im better than a begginer bt a good way but cant seem to make the next step up? iv been playing for just under 2 months. could you give me any advice on wgat to do next?
Very nice and well explained...thank you.
Tx i've been playing the bayonet for a while but the idea of c5!! after Nh5 or even Nd7 i did not knew and it looks very strong i'll take some time analysing it. That video just inspired me! TX alot
An awesome explanation, some another opening explanation please ?
Great video - the opening advice is good and the explanation of the tactical ending was great - what a time scramble that must have been!
Ok, I get into this opening quite a bit but what about the move 9 ... a5 by black. I tend to play Ba3 but after 10.Ba3 axb4 11.Bxb4 b6 the queen side is blocked and black can get back to assaulting the kingside. The same thing happens with 10.b5 b6
#10, gives black time. c5 seems more forward for white,much like closing the position. w/ b. and r. pawn to advance or pxp w/ bishop on r. file
This video was really clear and instructive...

Today Dr. Ginsburg provides a cure for the common affliction known as "getting-mated-in-the-King's-Indian-Defense-itis"! This aggressive sideline for white, when described in such a clear and concise manner by International Master mark Ginsburg, provides hope to many searching for "the answer" in the Bayonet Attack. Though no variation is perfect, the practical reasoning associated with this line is enough to get excited. Execute along the c-file and victory is yours!
