Chess lessons can be a learning experience for the coach as well as the student!  I teach my students to play the King's Indian Attack as White to avoid the necessity of studying countless openings.  At the New Jersey Open 2013, I tried it myself with success.  For an older player, the KIA is a good practical choice in a lengthy tournament where fatigue is a real factor.  White's first ten moves are almost always the same.
