Mar-28-06  zev22407: A model game in the KID
May-26-09  champsylove: Agree with Zev. I like the way that it appears that Shirov expends minimal time making queenside "safe". Plays very natural f4 then closing in on king. Another beautiful study in KID by Shirov.
Mar-12-10  shamat1: the KID is the best against d4
Oct-12-15  apexin: <shamat1> But theres only a handful of games it was used in the world championship's. It is very good if you play for a win at all costs, but QGD or Grunfeld are considered more solid. I'm not sure if theres a problem theoretically (probably not) like in some line of Benoni defence.
