Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-17-05  JoshuaJ8588: This variation for black is an extremely good one in the King's Indian. Black will give up a pawn and recieve excellent compensation for it.
Feb-17-05  JoshuaJ8588: King's Indian players have found the weapon to the Samisch!!
Jun-20-05  JoshuaJ8588: Why has the Panno not been seen much anymore? It is a great tool to fight the Samisch and white can get into great difficulty if he does not know how to play accurately.
Jun-20-05  maoam: <JoshuaJ8588>

The gambit line 6...c5! was rehabilitated; the model game for Black when White accepts is Kramnik vs Shirov, 1992. White's best try is to refuse the offer and play for a Benoni structure, for example Kasimdzhanov vs A Volokitin, 2003.

Jul-20-05  SEVEN: If this is a good line for black how we explain the following? White wins 42.9%
Black wins 28.0%
Draws 29.1%
Nov-30-05  Dudley: About average- but compared to the only 20% Black wins in other KID variations it looks pretty good.
Dec-17-07  arnaud1959: I'm a Saemisch player with white and honestly this variation is the one which makes me less comfortable. The idea is simple. White gives up the e5 square which allows Black to play ♘c6. Now white cannot play d5 like in variations with ♘f3.
