great video...thanks! I'm working on strengthening my dark square play and my whole repertoire is focused on this so these videos are perfect for me!
I don't understand how the dark squared black bishop sprung to life?
suggestion for KarlPilkington-
I don't play the King's Indian but i know some ideas for black
In the King's Indian Defence, you can try the maneuver Nf6-h5-f4 with a good outpost. If black removes the knight with his dark squared bishop, then when you capture with the f-pawn, your dark squared bishop opens up and can wreak havoc unopposed( white's dark squared bishop has been exchanged with your knight)
Other ideas include f5-drawing away the e-4 pawn, allowing you to play e4 yourself if the f-pawn is exchanged, which again opens up the diagonal for the bishop. If your opponent does not exchange on f5 then you have chances of creating a kingside attack by pushing on with f4 and f3(if possible).
Hope this was helpful
Thank you. You have a great teaching style. I hope you will supplement your videos with Chess Mentor courses.
great video. This added even more to my understanding of the Na6 KID I got from your excellent series. The 4 pawns attack video was also great. Are you going to be doing videos on the other KID variations (Averbakh, g3, Samisch)?
You said "don't be fooled that my dark-squared bishop is blocked. Later on it will spring to life."
It never did!
My problem with these openings is the dark-bishop is always blocked.
Can you respond to this concern?
at 9:50, why doesn't the grandmaster swap the knight on b3 for the dark squared bishop immediately if he is seeking to control the dark squares?
Although I don't play the KID myself it was a very instructive game and great lesson! It's good to see inside the mind and thought processes of a GM!
really brilliant, many thanks, I also like the dark squares, you people dont know the power of the dark side!
But isn't it true the kings indian defense is sort of refuted at top level gm play nowadays. Who really plays it
Not sure I understand all of this but the idea is interesting. Thanks for the video.
excellent class, highly instructive, i never really understood the kings indian defense, after watching/studying this lesson i feel more secured about my game, i comprehend the black square strategy more; thank you for providing this eugene! sincerely, wish you happiness and success!
its to hard
Looking forward to the next installment of your repertoire series
Thank you for speak slowly.
please, sorry have you turkısh chess lessons?
this really is a nice line in the kid, there's another series on this line here. But I don't see this a lot for black in games
Well this video was absolutely fantastic! Very informative, Eugene! For me it sort of tied together a whole series of Dzindzi lines ... thanks!!
Great new idea!
by GM Eugene Perelshteyn
Grandmaster Eugene Perelshteyn introduces a very original approach to the first stage of chess today, suggesting the idea of building a repertoire around "thematic principles" in the pawn structure, development patterns, and square control. His advice? Go after the dark squares! Eugene starts this new series designed to take you through his opening repertoire, and provide some great example games (a great KID Attack today) along the way!
