KID Slayer
Member since May-16-15 · Last seen Sep-18-20
As my username suggests, I love playing against the KID (King's Indian Defense) with White and beating it. When I play Black, I stick to the French Defense. My favorite player of all time is none other than Viktor Korchnoi.

KID Slayer: A stellar and model game of how to crush the KID with the Bayonet, especially in the 9...Ne8 line that has been gaining traction lately.

KID Slayer: Games like this raise the question as to why players with Black didn't use the French against Fischer more often. If I'm not mistaken it was his toughest opening to play against, especially the Winawer.

KID Slayer: Very poorly played game on Black's part. First he closes up the White king's surroundings from any potential break with 18...a3?, and then he aimlessly shuffles his rook back and forth while ignoring the chance to snatch White's bishop on d3. Not to mention how he allows White to

KID Slayer: <beatgiant> I agree with you entirely. There's a video that points out that 29...Bxh2 was in fact a blunder from the get-go and provides a plethora of variations showing Spassky always comes out on top. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8D...

KID Slayer: Excellent finish by Viktor my all-time fave! Reminds me of the classic Capa-Tartakower match of 1924 with 49.Kc3! that takes the rook-and-pawn ending in real style.

KID Slayer: Few games are more satisfying than seeing White get pummeled in the French Exchange just like Korchnoi humiliates his opponent here.
 
   Jan-13-19 Viktor Korchnoi (replies)
 
KID Slayer: Viktor is undoubtedly my favorite player ever. I admire his style to counterattack more aggressive folks like Tal or outmaneuver his equally positional foes such as Karpov. His games using the French as Black and beating the KID as White especially stand out to me. My faves are ...

KID Slayer: Awesome how that bishop trapped the knight on the edge for the rest of the game.
 
   Jul-22-16 J McConnell vs Morphy, 1850 (replies)
 
KID Slayer: My favorite player from the 19th century, Morphy, uses my favorite opening, the French, on a rare occasion. Quite the demolition from a guy who favored the Open Game and rarely ventured into the French (in less than 15 moves!).
