How to Crush with the King's Indian Defense Part 2

Jul 1, 2016, 2:47 PM |

  If you haven't seen part one of this blog I suggest you see it. 

   Now in case you haven't noticed part one was on some of the main line. In this blog we are going to look at the Samisch.

The Samisch is a very powerful weapon against the King's Indian Defense. If you don't know what to do, you will be wiped away. Let's have a look

The move f3 looks like a waste of time, but
it is preparing a kingside attack and stops black's 
own kingside attack.
                                                                                                                                                                            You might be thinking that I'm crazy and that this could NOT be a deadly weapon! White is stopping his own development with the move f3, and you are right. White is purposely preventing his own knight from going to the natural square of f3, however, this awkward looking move will stop black's kingside attack and will prepare white's own kingside attack!  
White is going to play Be3, Qd2, g4, and h4 with a huge attack.
Here's an example:
   I don't want you thinking that the King's Indian Defense is a horrible opening and that the Samisch will always destroy the King's Indian Defense. I was just showing to you what would happen if black would let white develope an attack with no counterplay. Now, there are many lines and variations you could play, but unfortunately I will only show you one that is effective but almost unknown. Look at the position below to find out more.
I hope you enjoyed this blog!
If we get enough comments I'll make part 3 soon!
