Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-30-03  xu fei: Does anyone know if 9...a6 is known theory? It looks like a really slow move. Maybe some other tries could have been:
9...Nd7 10.Nb5 Nc5 [11.Bxc5 dxc5 12.d6] 11.b4 a6 [12.bxc5 axb5 with some activity for black] 12.Nc3 Nd7

9...Nd7 10.g4 Nb6 11.h4 Qc7 12.g5 Ne8 13.h5 f5 [14.exf5 Bxf5 15.Nf4] 14.gxf6 e.p Nxf6 15.hxg6 hxg6

9...Ne8 10.g4 f5 11.gxf5 gxf5 12.exf5 Bxf5 13.Qg2 Kh8 14.h4 Rg8 this looks like a reasonable try, but none of these lines look that great for black.

In addition, the later 10...h5 seems unnecessary, and then 11...Nh7, 12...Qh4+, and 13...Qh5 looks like one big mistake. That's probably not what the queen was meant for... Statistically, this opening is pretty bad for black; it seems like the counterplay doesn't come fast enough. If anyone here plays the King's Indian Samisch, could you give some suggestions as to how black is 'supposed' to play the position after 9.cxd5?

Jul-30-03  refutor: 9. ... a6 is known theory and was even played by world champions including Botvinnik vs Tal, 1960 and Kamsky vs Kasparov, 1992
