Jun-11-06  refutor: i find the averbakh variation interesting (my interest piqued by averbakh's book "Tactics for Advanced Players") can anybody recommend a good book on this variation? or let me know if any of the "King's Indian Battle Plans" or "Winning with the King's Indian"-type books have decent coverage of this? thanks
