<a href="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/classical-kings-indian-defense-product-image.jpg"><img class="wp-image-1303146 size-thumbnail alignright" title="classical kings indian defense product image" src="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/classical-kings-indian-defense-product-image-300x300.jpg" alt="classical kings indian defense product image" width="300" height="300" /></a>

Kasparov and Fischer loved it. Engines hate it. The King’s Indian Defense is an enigma.

Black gives up space and has to tip-toe around, trying to free their pieces. And yet <em>somehow</em> the second player often wins brilliantly.

<em><strong>What <span style="text-decoration: underline;">is</span> going on?</strong></em>

Openings expert GM Marian Petrov explains that <strong>Black’s position is full of hidden power</strong> - BUT that power can <em>only</em> be released with perfectly timed breaks and devious maneuvers.

His new 4-hour course aims to teach you the secrets of the Classical King’s Indian Defense (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Nf3 0-0 6.Be2 e5) with a blend of theory, explanations, and model games.

Whether you want better results in this opening as White or Black, this is the training you need.<a href="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/kings-indian-defense-marian-petrov.jpeg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-1303165 size-medium" title="kings indian defense marian petrov" src="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/kings-indian-defense-marian-petrov-600x600.jpeg" alt="kings indian defense marian petrov" width="600" height="600" /></a>
<h2>Is this course for me?</h2>
This course focuses on the popular Classical variation where White castles and plays the natural Nf3 and Be2 moves.

GM Petrov explains how to deal with the four main ideas for White in this line, combining theory and strategic explanations with instructive wins by players like Fischer, Kasparov, Aronian, and Nakamura.

Whether you want better results in this opening as White or Black, this training provides everything you need.

It’s one of the few openings where just a little bit of extra knowledge leads to win after win.

<h2 style="text-align: center;">GM Petrov prepares you to win against the Classical King's Indian Defense with...</h2>
<ul>
 	<li><strong>Quick wins</strong>. Beat inexperienced players in no time with any one of the many tricks and traps. When White takes on e5 (diagram), Nxe4! wins back the pawn… and if they try Nxf7? you win on the spot!
<a href="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/kings-indian-defense-marian-petrov-2.gif"><img class="aligncenter size-thumbnail wp-image-1303176" title="kings indian defense marian petrov 2" src="https://cdn1.ichess.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/kings-indian-defense-marian-petrov-2-300x300.gif" alt="kings indian defense marian petrov 2" width="300" height="300" /></a></li>
 	<li><strong>The Fischer Method</strong>. When White closes the center with d5, Black needs to take action to avoid a boa constrictor squeeze. Bobby Fischer had this down to a science: exchange one particular minor piece, eliminate one specific pawn, put the Indian bishop on the perfect square and the game is yours! Marian Petrov reveals Bobby’s method in chapter 2.</li>
 	<li><strong>Strokes of genius</strong>. Load up with the most powerful attacking ideas of all-time! Picture your opponent’s face when you casually take the e4 pawn (diagram), hanging your queen! Watch as the color drains from that same face as you unleash Kasparov’s combination and wipe them off the board!

Overview

Chess Openings for Black: Classical King’s Indian Defense

classical kings indian defense product image

Kasparov and Fischer loved it. Engines hate it. The King’s Indian Defense is an enigma.

Black gives up space and has to tip-toe around, trying to free their pieces. And yet somehow the second player often wins brilliantly.

What is going on?

Openings expert GM Marian Petrov explains that Black’s position is full of hidden power – BUT that power can only be released with perfectly timed breaks and devious maneuvers.

His new 4-hour course aims to teach you the secrets of the Classical King’s Indian Defense (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Nf3 0-0 6.Be2 e5) with a blend of theory, explanations, and model games.

Whether you want better results in this opening as White or Black, this is the training you need.kings indian defense marian petrov

Is this course for me?

This course focuses on the popular Classical variation where White castles and plays the natural Nf3 and Be2 moves.

GM Petrov explains how to deal with the four main ideas for White in this line, combining theory and strategic explanations with instructive wins by players like Fischer, Kasparov, Aronian, and Nakamura.

Whether you want better results in this opening as White or Black, this training provides everything you need.

It’s one of the few openings where just a little bit of extra knowledge leads to win after win.

About the Author:

Marian Petrov is an accomplished professional chess coach, theorist, and Bulgarian champion for 2002 and 2017, as well as winner of many open tournaments around the world.

GM Petrov is also a FIDE trainer and was the coach of Team Wales at the 2016 Baku Olympiad. He graduated from the National Sports Academy in Sofia, Bulgaria, with a Bachelor’s degree in Chess Pedagogy, a four-year undergraduate program designed to prepare top-level chess trainers.

GM Petrov prepares you to win against the Classical King’s Indian Defense with…

  • Quick wins. Beat inexperienced players in no time with any one of the many tricks and traps. When White takes on e5 (diagram), Nxe4! wins back the pawn… and if they try Nxf7? you win on the spot!

  • The Fischer Method. When White closes the center with d5, Black needs to take action to avoid a boa constrictor squeeze. Bobby Fischer had this down to a science: exchange one particular minor piece, eliminate one specific pawn, put the Indian bishop on the perfect square and the game is yours! Marian Petrov reveals Bobby’s method in chapter 2.
  • Strokes of genius. Load up with the most powerful attacking ideas of all-time! Picture your opponent’s face when you casually take the e4 pawn (diagram), hanging your queen! Watch as the color drains from that same face as you unleash Kasparov’s combination and wipe them off the board!

The King’s Indian is one of few openings every player should learn. It’s full of advanced tactical and strategic ideas that will elevate your whole game.

And there’s no better introduction to the most popular lines in the Classical than this new training from GM Petrov.
