|Apr-24-04|| ||Dudley: This ECO code covers the Torre attack against the KID, which is also reached in the modern defense. Does anyone have any opinions on the effectiveness of the Torre vs. the KID? I am looking for a "non theoretical" way of playing against the KID, because my opening system for white involves an early Nf3, which rules out the more aggressive ways of playing such as the Sameisch or Four Pawns. I have cosidered the fianchetto variation for white but it seems too complex. |

|Sep-18-04|| ||Lawrence: <raymond patosa>, in the Frequently Asked Questions section precisely number 4 is "I want to play chess." There's a great list of places where you can play. Here on chessgames, on the contrary, we analyze games, solve the world's problems, and contemplate our navels. |
|Oct-30-04|| ||aw1988: Lawrence, I disagree. Perhaps for some unintellectual individual such as yourself you might find that interesting but... hey look, lint! |
|Oct-30-04|| ||refutor: <dudley> you really think that King's Indian, Fianchetto without c4 (A49) is complex? i think it's a great line v. the KID...you're fianchettoed bishop is just as strong as black's and it takes away the thematic kingside attacks that black uses in the KID. |
|Oct-30-04|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Dudley, I understand your problem. The main lines require a pile of memorizing and a ton of study. The trouble with White's main lines is that there is a good reason for their "main-ness;" these are the lines which grant the first player the best chances for maintaining the initiative which comes with having the first move.|
Having said that, if you feel comfortable with the early development of the QB to g5, you should take a look at lines where White plays 5.Bg5 or 6.Bg5, such as 1.d4,Nf6; 2.Nf3,g6; 3.c4,Bg7; 4.Nc3,0-0; 5.Bg5 followed by 6.e3, or 5.e4,d6; 6.Bg5. They are sound and aggressive.
|Nov-17-04|| ||Dudley: Thank you, <refutor> and <An Englishman> for your comments. I meant the fianchetto variation with c4 which after I looked at it some more doesn't seem so complex, at least not compared to a lot of other lines. The Bg5 with c4, possibly throwing in d5 1st also looks good enough. The King's Indian seems to have gone out of fashion recently at high levels. Btw, I happened to see the new Pal Benko book "My Life, Games and Compositions" and checked it out of the library. A great story with tons of chess games. Benko had better luck against Fischer than just about anyone, and gave up his spot in the interzonals to Fischer which led to the world championship. A real character and an interesting chess life. Lots of asides about other players of the day. |
|Feb-14-05|| ||crumpy: I thought this was called the barry attack |
|May-31-09|| ||YuanTi: The Barry Attack Occurs after 1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 g6 3. Nc3 d5 (Bg7 or d6 transposes to the Pirc after e4) 4. Bf4 Bg7 5. e3 O-O 6. Be2 , and is a fine aggressive way to bring a King's Indian Player out of their main lines.|
Other lines are also covered in this ECO though.
|Jan-08-11|| ||GrahamClayton: What is the reason behind 3.b4 and a queenside fianchetto by White, instead of 3.b3?|
