|Apr-18-03|| ||Rookpawn: Fischer plays the "King's Indian Attack" against the Sicilian in this game. |
|Apr-19-03|| ||kostich in time: a typical Fisher kings Indian attack win...this is from the second half of Piatigorsky Cup,when Fischer scored 6 wins and three draws,(after winning only one game in the whole first half!)and pretty much proved that he,and not Larsen,was the best player outside of the USSR |
|Apr-19-03|| ||drukenknight: Ivkov will be the first to tell you he was playing badly in the tournament. His comments in the tournament book are hysterical. Typical he will be saying "well 25 xyz would be better, but you cant really expect the tailender to see this." Commenting on his own play!|
In this game he creats a pawn formation on his K side that is just plain icky. If black intends to play something like a French dee, (he actually starts with the Kan Sicilian or whatever you call it with the early e6) then you should ask yourself "do I usualy see K side finachettos in this?" More common I think is f5, at least sometimes you see a French go inot something like a Dutch.
By the time we get to his 17th move, I dont think he's ready to play f5 but what about: 17...Nf6 18 NxN hxg6 19 f5?
|Oct-05-04|| ||clocked: <ray keene> recommends 9...f5 This move was first played in 1974. |
|Apr-12-06|| ||Chicago Chess Man: Tempting for me would've been 17. Nf6+ PxN 18. BxB NxB 19. PxP, but simply 19 ... Nf5 stops any threats.. If 20. Qg5+ Kh8 21. NxN, 21 ... Rg8 and white's done.|

White to play: 8 ?

8 f3-h4! was Fischer's strong novelty for playing the KIA against the ... f8-d6/ ... g8-e7 setup by Black.
Black's pieces are arranged to prevent the thematic pawn thrust e4-e5 by White. Fischer's novelty 8 f3-h4! intends f2-f4, forcing through e4-e5.
|Sep-19-08|| ||notyetagm: A *beautiful* KIA win by Fischer.|
|Nov-10-08|| ||veerar: Though,Fischer is an expert,in the KIA,Ivkov's 8...b6 does not make sense.Instead,Rb8 aiming the usual Q's side play,seems better.|
|Nov-10-08|| ||Travis Bickle: A touch of genuis for Robert James here!|
|Feb-09-09|| ||Eyal: 12.c3! is an important prophylactic move on the Q-side before starting the K-side attack in full force - it prevents c3 by Black, as well as Nb4/d4 once the queen leaves d1.|
|Aug-08-10|| ||Veryrusty: Apropos of <drukenknight>'s comment, here is Ivkov: "19. … Nd5? Again a move with this knight, and again weak! I had intended to play Kh8, with the threat of Ng8, to catch the queen. I gave up on this because White has the simple answer Nf3. All the same I should have continued that way, if it was necessary to play further …"|
And later, "20. … Re8. And here was the right moment for resigning. But a boxer very often is not aware of his own absurd movements, thinking that he is putting up resistance."
|Jan-08-11|| ||Ulhumbrus: In the game Konstantinopolsky vs Frank, 1935 White played the capture dxe5 against a King's Indian defence and went on to win. However in that game White castled on the Queen side instead of the King side. This suggests that against the King's Indian attack Black is advised to play the capture...dxe4 but then to castle on the Queen side instead of the King's side.|
|Mar-09-11|| ||ray keene: Ivkov shd have considered the blockading move 9...f5-I wd have been interested to see how Fischer wd have proceeded then.|
|Mar-15-11|| ||Damianx: Well he was persistent if nothing else 3 times he Played this against Fisher 4 the same result|
|May-31-11|| ||Ulhumbrus: On 9...f5 one possible choice is 10 Re1 clearing the square f1 for the move Nd2-f1 which in turn clears the square d2 for White's QB.|
