excellent - i love the clarity with which he explains these issues
I wonder if Petrosian played KID? The Great Victor Korchnoi did, as well as Fischer. :) exclam! lol
Great lecture, full of ideas. But I would like to point out that after 8.Be3 Ng4 9.Bg5 Qe8 10.dxe5 dxe5 11.h3 f6 12.Bd2 Nh6 13.Qc1 Nf7 14.Be3 c6 and now the concrete line 15.a3 Qe7 16.b4 Nc7 then 17.Bc5 is a bit irritating (17..Nd6 might still hold but is not really what you want). Still, this line seems good enough for black after a simple move like 16..Rd8 instead. Black does not lose his strategic options..
Thank you very much.
i love it!!!!!
Great Idea ....of having Na6 to take care of c7, and control dark squares quite better then Nbd7
I used the 6...Na6 variation this weekend at a tournament and I won the game against a player rated 1890.
Nice video! seems like i have to get my fear of SACRIFICING PEICES TO PLAY THIS! Ill do that in the first place.Thx again eugene
"Really interesting, but what may happens with 13. Qb3 instead of 13 . Qc1 ? 13..Kf7 is'nt powerful?"
13...Nf7 seems logical to me if 13. Qb3
wow! its great defense..
I will try this variation as well;after more study.Good video.I really enjoy your lectures.Keep them coming.Thanks
very logical my coach is teaching me this.
Really interesting, but what may happens with 13. Qb3 instead of 13 . Qc1 ? 13..Kf7 is'nt powerful?

This weekend's featured video is served up fresh and hot courtesy of GM Eugene Perelshteyn! We continue our mission of adding a dangerous weapon to our repertoire as black against the likes of "1.d4 players" everywhere. Having learned the basic positional concepts behind the move 6...Na6 (to break in the center and strive for control over the d4 and c5 squares) -- it is now time to delve into the "tactical" variations of this line. White's main line, 8.Be3 is on the docket today!
