Kibitzer's Corner
May-26-09  champsylove: I get the feeling I will be studying that opening sequence for a long time! Hey, if I want to improve my KID then this would be a good place to start.
Mar-14-14  SpiritedReposte: Lol what's going on here? Not a game to blitz through.
Dec-04-15  ISeth: If you want to get and see the real essence of Chess KID is one of the Openings which you should check out always . This is not just an Opening that you can visit with a "fast and furious attitude " but you must be slow as a Leech Worm to grasp this opening gradually . I believe people who have the Elo of at least 1800 + should dare to study this opening . Below that it would be very difficult to understand .This Opening provides a strong Strategical and tactical motifs . Most important the games are very asymmetrical .
