IM Marcin Sieciechowicz

IM Marcin Sieciechowicz unravels the beautiful King’s Indian Defense in this 10-hour video training. Starting from the Petrosian system to the Averbakh system to the Bayonet Attack, he takes each variation and decodes it move by move.

The engines do NOT understand this opening. Why?

  • Black allows White to build up his center advantage
  • Black fianchettoes his bishop and blocks it with e5-pawn
  • Black shuffles pieces to give White gain in tempi.

It surely goes against common sense, right?

Then why do so many of the world’s greatest players choose the King’s Indian? Tal, Fischer, and Kasparov! More recently, Nakamura, Svidler, Radjabov, and Ding Liren. And they win. Consistently… and often spectacularly. What’s the mystery here? It’s because the King’s Indian Defense is like a coiled cobra ready to strike at a moment’s notice… landing a nasty bite on the enemy king.

What you will learn:

  • Four pawns attack. White intends to push the f-pawn forward. Without hiding his intentions, he goes for it. Very sharp, and a totally open position! Learn how to play it as Black.
  • Kingside attack in Samisch. Ponomariov, as Black, pushed the h-pawn forward against Tomashevsky. Was that a mistake? Or was the Nge5 move was a little dicey? (Diagram) Let Sieciechowicz tell you.
  • Central lock in Petrosian. Learn how Kasparov went for a flank attack and rolled over White’s king protection. Piece by piece, move by move… with a dark-squared bishop exchange.
  • Opposite castling. White usually goes for full-on action. Tough to handle when all those kingside pawns are heading towards your king. See how Nakamura does it!
  • No central lock? A tough position to handle—the dark-squared bishop gains control of the long diagonal but White is far ahead in development. Does Black have any play?

This training includes access to the practicum where you can test your new knowledge, PLUS the PGN files with all variations.
