The King’s Indian Defense is the perfect opening weapon against 1. d4 for players who naturally display a tactical and dynamic style. This system is immensely popular at all levels because it gives black excellent winning chances against 1. d4. There are very few drawish lines in the King’s Indian Defense – the vast majority of the resulting middelgames are extremely double-edged and decisive results are overwhelmingly common. However, playing the King’s Indian Defense requires a definite element of risk as black tries to develop a dangerous attack against white’s king while making certain strategic concessions (white gains greater space in the center and long-term attacking prospects on the queenside). This may sound dangerous, but the King’s Indian Defense has been tested extensively at the highest levels of chess and continues to be employed by numerous Grandmasters in today’s game. Famous advocates of the KID include Bobby Fischer, David Bronstein, Garry Kasparov, Hikaru Nakamura, Teimour Radjabov, Vassily Ivanchuk, etc.. – fully proving the reliability of this opening system.
