Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-25-04  kostich in time: Even though kasparov has abandoned it(sigh), the KID is still a dangerous weapon inthe hands of some-one who knows how to play has more ppotential for a dynamic counter-attack than any other defense to the D-pawn
Nov-17-08  jerseybob: With the K.I.D. you've always got a puncher's chance, the chess version of Mike Weaver's 15th Round KO of John Tate. Viva K.I.D.
Jan-17-15  Conrad93: 11. Nd2 is weaker than 11. Ng5.

White completely gave up on defending the kingside.

Not a very convincing game from black.

  PawnSac: convincing enough.. it demonstrates that if white does not play accurately it has some punch.

How does the old saying go?
"If God played God in the Benoni, white would win" ? I think the same holds true in many KID lines.
