Feb-05-07  jperr75108: I'm thinking about taking up the Kings Indian Defence... Anyone here have any specific suggestions?
Feb-05-07  who: What level of a player are you?
Mar-30-08  Gameaddict: Does anyone know of a book or other source of material on 7....exd4? It seems like a playable way to avoid the intimidating theory of 7....Nc6.
Mar-30-08  computer chess guy: Nunn & Burgess, The New Classical King's Indian, covers 7 .. exd4 (in Chapter 5), but it's 10+ years old now.
Mar-30-08  J4z: Very "deep" opening... get ready to put your study hat on! =D Though I do use it when my opponent opens with 1.d4. I like how it allows me to set up and absorb what my opponent tries to do.

Oct-10-13  parisattack: This variation (and especially the MdP) is a game itself. Enormously complex both tactically and strategically.
