More King’s Indian Games
I looked a bit deeper into this dynamic opening this fine Sunday afternoon.
Game 1: Bocharov-Shimanov
Benoni via Saemisch 6..c5 7.d5(A65)
The kingside looks loose. How should Black continue?
Game 2: Yu Yangyi-Zeng
How does White make progress?
Game 3: Edouard-Iniyan
Classical 9.a4 a5(E97)
What should White do about the attacked Nb5?
I found an plausible improvement over the game continuation
Game 4: Ding Liren-Lin Chen
g3 Panno 7..Bg4(E62)
The opening went badly for Black, who got nothing for giving up the bishop pair after making the planned ..Bxf3 exchange.
How should White continue?
Game 5: Flom-Ganguly
Saemisch 6.Be3 c5 7.dc(E81)
Kotronias recommends the 6..c5 approach in Vol5 of his series on the King’s Indian. White has various way to enter a Benoni or can take the offered c-pawn.
Both sides have yet to complete their development. How should Black justify the pawn gambit?
White had played well to keep the balance but unfortunately blundered now. What should White play here?
Game 6: Pakhomov-Popov
g3 Panno 7..Bf5
White weakened his kingside to chase off the annoying Black queen. White should Black do about this?
