We continue with our "theme" of pet lines in the King's Indian, but this time it's White's turn to surprise. GM Finegold shows a pair of games with an early Bf4, a move that "you are sure to know better than your opponent." In one case, Black continues normally. In the other, Black chases the seemingly wayward bishop. But both times end in crushing defeats for Black. Watch and learn what you should do to combat the variation, and what happens if you don't!
