When you play 1.d4, one of the most common openings that you will encounter is the King’s Indian Defence. After 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 how do continue? GM Jan Werle of the Netherlands suggests 5.f3 – the Saemisch Variation. Guess what: you can also use the same antidote against the Benoni! Jan, who has published a ChessBase DVD on the subject, shows you how this works – in this video stream with ChessBase India. It is the perfect 1½ lesson to build your understanding of this opening.
