Trends in the KID Saemish 2012(TWIC 944)

Here a recent game from TWIC 944 in the topic King’s Indian Saemish which was the repertoire recommendation of Schandorff in Playing 1.d4 The Indian Defences


Nikolov,Mo(2542) – Lorenzo de la Riva,L(2465)
King’s Indian Saemisch 6…e5[E89]
XVIII Navalmoral Open Navalmoral de la Mata ESP(6.4),08.12.2012

Position 1
White is preparing for a long positional siege. What do you suggest for black?

Black to Play

Position 2
There is no tactical confrontation at the moment. This is time to form a plan for the next stage of the game. Suggest an idea for white
  • 21.Bh6 to soften up the kingside for attack. This is logical as white already has the g-file to work with
  • 21.Kf2 to connect the rook. White can achieve nothing without coordination between all pieces
  • 21.Rc1 to take the c-file. This is a logical idea as Ra1 was doing nothing useful
  • Something else
White to Play
Position 3
White has been trying to break down black’s position for a long time now but after 72…Qh3 black seems to be getting some counterplay. What do you suggest for white?
White to Play
