King’s Indian Defence-TWIC 955
I found 3 interesting games in the Classical variation of the King’s Indian. Previously I had prepared the Saemisch variation but now some backup ideas are needed in my repertoire.
Rodshtein,M got a queenside bind going with an early c5 and then had to win the game over again after letting the advantage slip away.

Eljanov,P obtained a crushing bind after black chose to keep the queens on and play for middlegame complications.

The bayonet variation saw action (9.b4 Nh5 E97) but with 10.g3 as opposed to 10.Re1. In the featured game, Yilmaz got a massive kingside attack after black loosened the kingside.
