Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-24-08  Jafar219: KID is the best.
Dec-24-08  Emma: Agreed
Dec-24-08  parisattack: <Jafar219: KID is the best.> In the hands of its top practitioners - Bronstein, Boleslavski, Geller, Gligoric, Fischer, Stein, Kasparov.

I think there is still much to be discovered in the KID - I look forward to the day when the Semi-Slav is less popular.
