More on the King’s Indian-TWIC 1186

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)

After 21.g4(Diagram)

The kingside looks loose. How should Black continue?

After 21.g4

Game 2: Yu Yangyi-Zeng 

6.h3 Classical(E90)

After 21..Rg8(Diagram)

How does White make progress?

After 21..Rg8

Game 3: Edouard-Iniyan

Classical 9.a4 a5(E97)

After 18..c6(Diagram)

What should White do about the attacked Nb5?

I found an plausible improvement over the game continuation

After 18..c6

Game 4: Ding Liren-Lin Chen

g3 Panno 7..Bg4(E62)

After 20..Ne8(Diagram)

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?

After 20..Ne8

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.

After 19.Nxd4(Diagram)

Both sides have yet to complete their development. How should Black justify the pawn gambit?

After 19.Nxd4

After 39..Ke5(Diagram)

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

After 18.g4(Diagram)

White weakened his kingside to chase off the annoying Black queen. White should Black do about this?

After 18.g4?
