Play it like Bobby Fischer!

I have always loved the King's Indian. My coaches, Ion Solonar and Vyacheslav Chebanenco, showed me how to play this opening with Black, and they also showed me how to handle King's Indian structures with an extra tempo. An important extra tempo: Black plays the King's Indian Defense, White plays the King's Indian Attack! The King's Indian Attack was one of the favorite openings of Bobby Fischer, whose enormous will to win and aggressive play are legendary. He scored 8.5 points from 9 games with the King's Indian Attack, playing a series of model games showing how White should attack.

The King's Indian Attack most often occurs when the opponent wants to play the French (1.e4 e6 2.d3) or the Sicilian with 2...e6, but it can also arise from the Reti Opening when Black plays ...e6 and ...d5 to induce structures of the Queen's Gambit Declined. Thirty years ago, the King's Indian Attack was considered an interesting and original way to avoid theoretical duels. But current theory sees the King's Indian Attack in line with the modern approach of moving the battle for the center to the middlegame. The King's Indian Attack is full of positional and tactical ideas and is often an unpleasant surprise for the opponent. The opening is easy to prepare, but it is important to remember that the King's Indian Attack is all about ideas and plans rather than forced and complicated variations. I used the King's Indian Attack successfully as a youth player and it still serves me well today.
