New Idea against ...g6!!
Hey guys,
I think I've found something interesting to play against ...g6!

The long and short of it is that much of Black's play in the King's Indian Defense comes from the rickety nature of White's d4 pawn...so perhaps there is some way of making use of the extra stability of the e3 pawn after:

1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6 3.e3 Bg7 4.c4 0-0 (...d5 transposes to the Sneaky Gruenfeld)

I have come up with the following interesting line:

5.Be2 (perhaps Nc3 is better, but this, at least, continues to make the gruenfeld unliked) d6 6.Nc3 Nbd7 7.0-0 e5

This is "the" way of dealing with "e3" if you are a KID player. This is the idea Watson gives in his Mastering the opening's book, and it is what we see in those games I posted by Norowitz (though he fianchettoed Bb2 instead of using his time to play out his other pieces)

And now: 8.Qc2!?

In the 'normal' KID variations, this is pretty silly since Black will just play ...exd4, clearing the diagonal for his Bishop, but now that White could play exd4 in response, this exchange would be rather bad for Black.

So what does Black do? White is threatening to exchange and then play Rd1 with a very comfortable position.

Practice has seen two options here: 8...c6, which you would probably not see in class play, and 8...Re8.

A likely line is 8...Re8 9.dxe5 Nxe5 10.Nxe5 dxe5 11.Re1 Qe7 12. Nd5! Nxd5 13.cxd5 e4 14.Bd2 Qg5! 15.Bc3 Bh3 16.g3 and i don't think Black can make any headway. (e.g. 16...Bf8 17.Qb3 b6 18.Rc1 Bd6 19.Bb4)

8...c6 gives Black an extra escape route for the Queen and stops d5, but it weakens the d6 square, which currently has no protection at all. 9.b4, in addition to generally gaining space, this move removes the c5 square from the Knight on d7.
After 9...exd4 10.exd4 Nb6 11.Re1 it appears White's pieces have slight more active posts.

What do you think?
