    I have begun to play the King’s Indian Attack, and this course is just a terrific way to learn the nuances of the opening. GM Lemos outlines the principles and the strategy of the KIA in a clear and concise manner. His chosen examples show the various ways to cope with whatever plan your opponent chooses to play against you. This is an opening which can be used against almost any Black opening and does not require the memorization of a multitude of variations. A lazy man’s opening which can turn the tables on an unsuspecting opponent!

    GM Lemos presents (Fischer’s favorite) the King’s Indian Attack in a clear and instructive way. The opening moves can pretty much be played regardless of what opening black plays, which is appealing for players like me that have a limited time to study. In recent years I have particularly struggled against the French defence – the KIA presented by GM Lemos offers a great approach for taking down the French opening. I currently play e4 and have some dynamic responses to many of blacks openings – the King’s Indian Attack fits well with my e4 repertoire, in some cases giving me a fall back when my theory is lacking. I would recommend this download for anyone who either wants an easy to learn all encompassing opening, or (like me) if you want to add more strings to your bow, complimenting your existing knowledge.

    For the busy 1.e4 player this DVD gives fresh suggestions for an opening that can be played against all the major systems black has against 1. e4 including the french, sicilian, and caro-kann. It is a very straight forward and flexible move system that doesn’t take a lot of time to master. It also comes with great study guide which outlines the general plans against each opening defense for black. Easy to follow. The fresh look at this opening offers a solid and simple system against the black’s mainlines as well. Damien’s learning approach is straight forward and systematic and offers multiple ways to play the defense depending upon your style. As usual Damien’s product is approachable, comprehensive, and enjoyable making this Deep Dive a great value.

    Excellent but, I suggest that a move suggestion be added when black answers with e5. I go with Ruy Lopez.
