98_E71_KID Makogonov's 5.h3 (White wins)
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

"The Classical King's Indian with h3 has gained a wide following, mostly because of its flexibility. It is commonly called the <Makagonov System> (E71) when White plays 5.h3 and the <Krasenkow System> when White plays 5.Nf3 followed by 6.h3 (though that was actually Vladimir Makagonov's preferred move order!) -- but I have not made a distinction between the two here as transpositions are common. It is worth noting that when Martin Breutigam produced his ChessBase CD in 2002, he complained about having a paucity of source material to draw upon. Times have certainly changed, for it seems that the line is now completely mainstream and much has been written about it.

I think the lines with h3 for White are very worth exploring, with a lot of room for creativity. In some ways, h3 seems like a "high class waiting move," with White waiting for Black to commit himself before deciding on his plan. I am most interested in the line from the Black perspective, where I tend to favor an early Na6, which is Black's most flexible rejoinder. An interesting option against the 5.h3 move order, though, is a Byrne approach with a6, c6, and b5, as seen in the game Suba vs Golubev, 1997, though this idea is not much discussed in the literature." ... http://kenilworthian.blogspot.com/2...
