Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-21-08  jon01: This game shows that black doesn't have to be afraid of 7. dxe5 in King's Indian.
Mar-27-08  InspiredByMorphy: Is 10.Nxf7 a playable variation?
Sep-29-08  refutor: <<inspiredbymorphy>is 10.Nxf7 a playable variation?>

no, because of 10. ...Bxc3+ 11.bxc3 Kxf7 and Black is up a whole piece

Oct-30-14  tranquilsimplicity: I was always afraid of this variation (dxe5) whilst playing the King's Indian Defence, and would therefore play an early ..Nd7 or ..Nc6 before pushing ..e5. However, I knew very well that it actually favours Black and thus all King's Indian Defence expert GMs Bronstein, Fischer, Kasparov, Geller seemed to win very easily against it. But I did not know how to reply. When I analysed with Fritz 12, the variation favoured Black but the practitioner has to memorise the lines. It is one of those variations where memorisation is key.#
Aug-01-22  cehertan: Interesting, tranquilsimplicity I would probably say the opposite. There are many KID variations which require memorizing a lot of theory, but this one mostly demands positionally natural moves. White cedes control of d4 and as with a black Sicilian, the endgame prospects should be good for black if he can weather a slight white initiative.
