The King's Indian Chronicles 1

Avoiding the Bayonet Attack

06/10/2021 –    GM Teimur Radjabov considered the most feared King’s Indian  player. I have seen many of his games and there’s a resemblance with GM Kasparov’s games. 

Our featured two (2) games are both King’s Indian theme although there are transpositions, that diverted to different opening lines. GM Mamedyarov used  white’s g3 line, while the 2nd featured game, GM Kramnik  dealt with  GM Radjabov’s prepared King’s Indian line 7..exd4 (avoiding the Bayonet Attack). Let’s enjoy these games while having coffee and chocolate cake…Yum!!

The King's Indian or transposed to Gruenfeld

1st Game : Check diagram below (GAME VIEWER 1)

GM Mamedyarov's 6.b3 move I say "dubious" since black created weaknesses at white's position at early stage. What a wonderful game to see, it teaches us about " Dark Square Strategy".

The King's Indian Other variation 7...exd4

2nd Game: Check diagram below (GAME VIEWER 2)

GM Teimur Radjabov avoided the main line and used the 7...ed4 line versus GM Vladimir Kramnik. We witness deep understanding of endgame position by GM Kramnik as shown here. This game is classy so nice to watch, full of chess goodness... Watch my game below (YouTube video) it shows how to deal with other King's Indian variation.
