When is it best to use the king's Indian defense. Are the certain openings where is most effective? Whenever I use it, I end up trapping my bishop.
you should re-check your theory if you trap your bishop
Well the issue, as pfren says in one word is that its not the openings fault; its yours.
Dont blame the opening for your middlegame mistakes.
Thanks topj for your suggestion. I will look into the theory behind the kings Indian defense.
