Chess Openings: King’s Indian Attack Mastermind with GM Jacek Stopa

GM Jacek Stopa gives you 10 hours of training in King’s Indian Attack and covers how GMs like Fischer, Kramnik and Sasikiran used this chess opening for White in their very own way.

You’ll learn an easy-to-remember, non-theoretical system for White that had the 100% approval of Bobby Fischer himself.

If you’re an attacker, but you hate memorizing the mountains of theory needed in the Sicilian, Caro-Kann and especially French defenses…

I get it. FORGET 1.e4.

King’s Indian Attack Mastermind with GM Jacek StopaWhat is a sword-swinging, pawn-storming, king-hunting maniac to do though?

Well, according to Polish GM Jacek Stopa, you should give the King’s Indian Attack a try.

Bobby Fischer relied on this system a ton as a kid when facing more experienced, booked-up adult masters.

And Kasparov used it to crush Deep Blue in game 1 of their famous match.

So I guess GM Stopa has a point.

All you need to do is play 1.Nf3 2.g3 3.Bg2 4.0-0 and then develop your attack based on how black responds… no theory needed!

King’s Indian Attack Mastermind with GM Jacek StopaAbout the Author

Grandmaster Jacek Stopa, originally from Poland, started playing chess at the age of 8 after randomly buying a chess set on a winter vacation. His father taught him how to play and he soon became addicted. Jacek earned his International Master title at age 18 and was the European Team Chess Champion in Solving Chess Problems in 2008.

He has developed into a very effective chess instructor over recent years, helping many young chess players reach their maximum potential.

Is this course for me?

Inside You’ll Discover:

  • The Best Attacking Plans Any Club Player Can Use: Whether you prefer to storm the kingside with pawns, pieces, or both…GM Stopa’s deadly attacking plans will have you crashing through for a brilliant checkmate every time!
  • GM Stopa’s Big Improvement on Kramnik’s KIA: On what was “not Kramnik’s best day” he played defensively instead of bravely refuting his opponent’s idea. GM Stopa introduces a simple new idea that would have given Kramnik an easy win… (See Game 4 and write this idea down!).
  • How GM Sasikiran’s KIA Imprisoned Anand’s Bishop for an Easy Win! It’s not often a mastermind like Vishy Anand is humiliated in this way. In Game 1 you’ll learn the dynamic strategy used by his Indian compatriot to brutally dominate in a highly instructive game (plus, how you can use this idea too!).

Add to your 10 hours of high-quality video lessons a complete PGN file of all analysis and you’re armed with all you need to play confident and aggressive chess with white…no matter what black tries!
