The King’s Indian Attack

I’ve made a DVD about the King’s Indian Attack as well as 1.g3 so it was nice to see my fellow DVD presenter Andrew Martin transpose into the latter using the former! When Black was forced to play …c6-c5 he contracted serious weaknesses on d5 and b5 after which Martin trussed him up like a chicken and then executed him on the kingside.

Flank Openings can be great for older players with a rich knowledge of different types of positions because they rely on understanding rather than an exact knowledge of particular moves.
