  1. Rated 4 out of 5

    These products are by far the most comprehensive discussions on the King’s Indian Defense. Although, some lectures are limited to Classical lines, such as Empire Volumes 2 and 36. So, you need to study other Volumes as well, although the presenters are not as good as GM Perelshteyn who did explained very clearly and demonstrated positional and tactical the plans of Black and the ideas that White will have that Black needs to watch out for. FM Alisa Melekhina did very well also. Other presenters are somewhat boring or slow when presenting information but nevertheless their materials may be helpful, but I think you will also benefit from their lectures.

    I cannot help myself but to re-rate this products again. Like I said before these products are by far the most comprehensive discussions on the King’s Indian Defense. There are tone of ideas which we could be benefited for watching and keep on learning about the King’s Indian Defense. Although, some lectures are limited to Classical lines, such as Empire Volumes 2 and 36. So, you need to study other Volumes as well, although the presenters are not as good as GM Perelshteyn who did explained very clearly and demonstrated positional and tactical the plans of Black and the ideas that White will have that Black needs to watch out for. FM Alisa Melekhina did very well also. Other presenters are somewhat boring or slow when presenting information but nevertheless their materials may be helpful, but I think you will also benefit from their lectures.

    To tell you a story, I begun to examine the lines in the KID for which I intentionally does not want to play anymore. During the times for which I am in my 20’s, I can memorize many lines, including critical lines. And i use KID because I am also a follower of Fischer and Kasparov. But when I get old, I am 40 now, I choose an opening which is solid but sound such as Queen’s Indian Defense. But because I want to play the exciting KID again, I purchased the product. And when I play Blitz games with my friends, I often found myself playing KID with the recommendations in these DVD Bundle, and most often I win, sometimes draw, and I am happy with that.

    Verdict: Buy the DVDs if you want to learn more about this aggressive counter-attacking defense use by world champions. Play attacking chess, use KID, and enjoy chess.

    The Kings Indian is an opening which is close to my heart, it was one of the first openings I ever played and even though it is not my main repertoire anymore I still have fun from time to time when playing it.
    This Bundle is I would say pretty good. A solid 8/10, to see different players from different countries with different playing strengths is really interesting. There are really, really good videos, e.g. I found the lessons from GM Leonid Kritz extremely insightful, my issue here is, that a lot of white’s options and sidelines are not covered. The London System which is highly popular is one of those “sidelines” which is unfortunately not covered. But the lines he features are well explained and researched. As this DVD is a bit older the quality is not as on a high standard, as we might now expect, but his DVD is great for the short running time…
    The Course by Im Jorge Ferreira was in my opinion also good, especially the introduction was full of in depth information about the classical variation, that some parts of it stuck to me months after watching it. The rest of the DVD is a little bit worse, than the introduction, but by no means bad. He really knows his stuff and he shows it. The coverage of the rest of the variations is clear and well done.
    IM Christian Richter s DVD is really good if you need to study or want to study the classical variation, as most of the DVDs have a focus on the classical variation you should already have a good/ great understanding of the arising positions but I my opinion he does still a great job, covering lines in detail which other courses ignore or just briefly touch on. His English is not the best, but understandable. For me the best part was his chapter on rook e1 on the 13. Move, as he gave there really interesting analysis, in this almost 2 hour chapter. This course is the biggest and you will know after watching it a lot of stuff about the arising positions.

    Alisa Melekhina, doesn’t go as much into detail but, nevertheless it gives you a good overview and I think her DVD is a good starting point to get a general understanding of the postions that arise in the KID. She could sometimes explain the ideas a bit more deeply though, the KID is a highly complex opening with a lot of positions to get lost in hours and hours of analysis, which is why I look at her course as a kind of introduction to the KID, she sometimes rushes through the moves and misses maybe out on explaining some great endgames like in Chapter 5 a opposite bishops colour endgame. This isn’t the topic of the DVD but still it would be interesting to hear her thoughts at least in short on some of the moves and show 1-2 variations.
    I think her course is the worst of those presented in this bundle.

    The Last DVD is from Gm Eugene Perelshteyn and I like his DVD the most, even though it seems a bit a out of place. Every other DVD in this course focuses on the main-line in the classical variation. And this DVD focuses on the Na6 Variation. A bit strange, at least in my opinion. But he is by far one of my favourite teachers, he explains really great and I believe that this is the best DVD in this bundle, despite covering “only” 1 Variation, but the way he presents it is just great. He knows what he is talking about and I wish he would produce some more DVDs like this one.

    In Conclusion:
    There are things that are not covered, like the London-System or other Sidelines. The main variations are pretty much as much as I can tell covered. This is a good bundle, but there are some things that are missing. 8/10

    My rating is 1592. I watched this video several times and I just beat a player rated 2038. There were several tips made in the videos that I was not even considering such as looking for in between moves rather than recapturing and also waiting to attack until I have the initiative and better piece coordination. I highly recommend these videos.
