GM Eugene Perelshteyn

The King`s Indian Defense is one of the most popular chess opening systems ever played due to the naturally dynamic and double-edged positions that frequently arise. Since the early 20th century the King`s Indian Defense has been regularly employed at the highest levels of chess by legendary names like David Bronstein, Bobby Fischer, and Garry Kasparov to name a few. However the King`s Indian Defense has experienced a slight decline in popularity in recent years due to the hyper-aggressive Bayonet Attack (used by the white pieces and commonly seen by players like Anand and Kramnik.) But many KID die-hard fans have not lost heart, and neither should you! The KID is alive and kicking, and one of this exciting opening`s leading proponents – GM Eugene Perelshteyn – has produced an action-packed chess DVD to explain his battle-tested secrets in a relatively new sideline that starts with 6. …Na6.

GM Perelshteyn has experienced high rates of success at the grandmaster level with the 6. …Na6 System of the King`s Indian Defense due to his deep understanding of the subtleties in this fascinating sideline. Black deviates from the main lines early by employing a highly flexible knight maneuver to the edge of the board that is surprisingly difficult for white to exploit. The 6. …Na6 System is excellent for beginner and intermediate players because it does not require extensive memorization like other chess openings and other lines of the King`s Indian Defense. Rather this 6. …Na6 sideline is more based on general ideas and understanding. Grandmaster Perelshteyn`s presentation is remarkably entertaining, clear, and organized – focusing more on the reasons behind the moves than direct memorization of lines and move orders. If you want to learn a concept-based chess opening that is guaranteed to give you strong chances to fight for a win with black against 1. d4, this chess DVD is the solution you have been looking for!

    I you are a KID player and your opponents are prepared for you – the Na6 system is a good weapon against the main line – not played so often and more positional but with a lot of pitfalls for white – worth giving it a try. And if you know the KID its quite easy to learn – excellent material as usual by Eugene Perlshteyn

    „Empire Chess Vol. 2 – Dominate White with the King’s Indian Defense 6…Na6 System” by Eugene Perelshteyn (OnlineChessLessons.net)

    I continue my discussion of the Empire Chess series by OnlineChessLessons.net, which caught my interest in summer 2013. I already had a look at the first DVD covering the Nimzo Indian Defence from black’s point of view and now it’s time to check out the second volume, which deals with the all-famous King’s Indian Defence.

    This opening is as fashionable as an opening can be. It was the main weapon of players such as GM Garry Kasparov and GM Robert James Fischer who are arguably two of the most dominant personalities in the world of chess. They used this system during their whole career and made it a dangerous weapon for black players who want to fight for the Initiative.

    Nowadays the system has developed quite extensively. It is played at the very top by the Nr. 1 American player GM Hikaru Nakamura and the Azeri GM Teimour Radjabov. While systems with …Nbd7 and …Nc6 are the most common and the most thoroughly analyzed variations in the King’s Indian, relatively little attention is paid to the system involving an early …Na6 by Black. Why is this case? First of all, …Na6 looks as if it breaks certain principles. We are all taught to develop pieces towards the centre as they are more flexible there and control important central files. Secondly, a knight on the rim is dim, right? Well, there is quite a logical justification behind this knight ‘development’.
    In the King’s Indian, White is allowed to build a powerful centre by means of e2-e4, d2-d4 and c2-c4. This certainly cramps Black so his main strategy is to attack the centre. If you allow the opponent to take the centre you have to undermine it in the process of the game.

    The DVD contains six chapters:

    Chapter 1 – Main line 8.d5
    Chapter 2 – Main line 8.Re1
    Chapter 3 – Main line 8.Be3
    Chapter 4 – 8.Be3 and 10.Re1 variation
    Chapter 5 – Game analysis 1
    Chapter 6 – Game analysis 2

    As you can see, all important lines are covered and are analyzed quite deeply. I’m not an expert on the King’s Indian from Black’s point of view, since I’m used to move the white side, but the analysis is similar to mine and thus I can tell you that the author took some efforts when producing the DVD.

    You get a detailed coverage of the lines involving an early closure of the position with d4-d5, which creates the typical King’s Indian structure, as well as the lines starting with Re1 and Be3, with whom White waits for Black to commit somewhere, before reacting accordingly.

    I must admit, that the …Na6 “KID” is not as harmless as many might think. Despite being a sideline, it’s still a tricky move which has its’ own plans and alters the character of the game. The one understanding the position, the plans and ideas better is the one who might win the opening battle.

    This DVD does cover the …Na6 line only in the Classical Variation with Nf3. It’s important to mention this, since the move …Na6 has cropped up in other lines as well. You won’t get a complete repertoire based on the King’s Indian, but a strong antidote to White’s classical set-up involving natural developing moves.

    Since this is the second DVD I’m reviewing I must still say, that I miss a separate file with a .pgn or .cbh file, which covers the mentioned lines. This would certainly help adding those files to your already existing files, as I’m sure, many readers would like to use what they just watched.

    Conclusion:

    A good piece of work. Certainly a line which deserves more attention that it actually gets. I’ll definitely refresh my analysis with the ideas given by Eugene Perelshteyn. From Black’s point of view, this might be an interesting line to use as a surprise-weapon. It’s easy to learn, since the plans are easy and understandable. I would suggest this line to club players, since on lower levels, surprises tend to yield very good results, as the opponent usually reacts according to plan A, but forgets that this might not be applicable in the …Na6 King’s Indian.

    :

    While the King’s Indian is one of the most analyzed openings in modern times. GM Eugene Perelshteyn devotes this DVD to a lesser known sideline, 4. ..Na6. This can be a very tricky variation for White to play against and Perelshteyn does a terrific job explaining the myriad of variations arising from this opening. A must see video for the KID player if he wants to attempt to wrestle the advantage from White early in the game.

    Excellent explanation about how to dominate the King’s indian Defense. With an introduction, two games analysis and a lot of extra information I can handle this Defense as an expert.
