Feb-27-06  zev22407: Bagirov-Gufeld 1973 is another briliant win with the kings indian.
Feb-27-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: Gufeld's games make me want to learn the King's Indian.His books on this subject seem to be very popular,
Mar-19-06  DeepBlade: <Timothy Glenn Forney> Indeed, KIA is a very solid defence with great attacking potential. Nowadays Im trying to improve on the Barça System (for White) so when I play Black I kinda get the feel for development (defence) and basic attacking ideas.
Mar-28-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: I just tried my first KIA on the net at chessmaniac just as a test its very positional,I made a blunder,but my opponent didn't see it.Maybe I'll buy Gufeld's book,His book on strategy looks interesting, that will be a book I will get in the future.
Jul-24-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: 22...Rb4! just boggles my mind.
Aug-05-07  aazqua: What's the big deal about rb4? What is black doing with h5 other than resigning?

  Jonathan Sarfati: Gufeld could handle attack and defence in the KID better than almost anyone.
