The Art of the King's Indian - Oleg Stetsko, Eduard Gufeld

Grandmaster Dejan Bojkov of Bulgaria loves the King's Indian Defense.

Having played it from his youth after reading Bronstein's great book on the Zurich 1953 International Tournament, his love for the Kings Indian Defense is on display throughout this volume, which is filled with creative ideas and strategies, tactics, and especially those shocking shots characteristic of the King's Indian.

The lines Bojkov recommends to you often involve giving up the center with ...e5xd4 and then using ...c7-c6 and eventually ...d6-d5 to break it all open at the right moment.

The variations covered in this book include:

1. The Classical Variation
1a The Flexibility in the Classical Variation
1b The Glicoric System
1c The Exchange System
1d The Petrosian System

2. The Samisch Variation
3. The Four Pawns Attack
4. The Averbakh System
5. The Bagirov Line
6. The Fianchetto System

This book not only contains many new ideas and novelties, but will significantly increase your understanding of the KID! With lots of exercises to test your growing skills.
