For some reason, certain openings give players trouble no matter how well versed they are in theory. Sometimes this is a matter of style.

This series is designed to explore a universal system against hypermodern openings, a system known for causing trouble, especially for beginners. Yet, all levels will find great value in FM Charles Galofre's system for Black against the King's Indian Attack. 

Not what you're looking for? Go back to the video guide.

A Universal System vs The Dutch After you watch this video, you'll never have to worry about the Dutch again. Dzindzichashvili explained to me: Against some openings, it is ok to get a playable position, but the Dutch goes against principles. Against openings like that, you should get a serious advantage. He also promises that this system is easy to learn and remember.
