En aktuell og større ny Kongeindisk-bibel for svart av selveste Bologan, som har blitt den fremste av de svært sterke stormesterne til å presentere moderne åpningsteori. En imponerende bok.

Det er også egne kapitler om spill mot alternative oppstillinger fra hvit, som Engelsk eller London.

Forlagets omtale:

The King’s Indian Defence is arguably the most ambitious and exciting way to play against 1.d4. Black wants to start an early attack on his opponent’s king, relying on the dynamic potential of his position. The KID has been a favourite of legendary attacking players such as Mikhail Tal, Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov, and remains highly popular at club level.

Victor Bologan presents a complete King’s Indian repertoire for Black that is much more than just a lucidly explained and very playable set of responses. In many lines he presents two options to handle the Black position.

Bologan’s explanations are accessible for a wide range of players and he provides the reader with a thorough grounding in the strategic and tactical motifs. White players can benefit from this book as well, since the author looks at all the lines from both sides.

During his research, Bologan has found many new ideas and resources. He has also included several offbeat sidelines that will enable you to surprise your opponent. With this book under your belt you can go to your next tournament with confidence. You will win many exciting games with Bologan’s King’s Indian!

Victor Bologan is a world-class Grandmaster. His tournament victories include the Aeroflot Open in Moscow and the Dortmund super-tournament. He is the author of acclaimed opening manuals like 'The Chebanenko Slav', 'The Rossolimo Sicilian' and 'The Powerful Catalan'. His latest publications 'Bologan’s Ruy Lopez for Black' and 'Bologan’s Black Weapons in the Open Games' became world-wide bestsellers.

Et lite utdrag fra forordet til Bologan:

The KID is a living organism, which is constantly growing. It is played regularly at all levels, from elite all-play-alls to more democratic opens. The assessments of specific variations are continually being amended and sometimes even change radically from one extreme to the other. I am pleased to note that the first edition of this book, which appeared in 2009 was warmly greeted by readers and critics alike and proved very popular. Later, at the suggestion of ChessBase, I made two DVDs on the KID for Black, which also attracted high evaluations from viewers. I hope I have managed to make a small contribution to popularising the KID.

Of course, theory and practice do not stand still. ‘Anti-KID’ ideas are also worked on constantly and new, original ideas are unearthed, which pose Black new problems, sometimes just for one game, and sometimes more conceptually. Therefore, in this new edition I have had to add a number of improvements and sometimes develop a whole new defensive set-up. As well as main lines, I also decided to deal with some less serious lines, lines which are not fully correct, but the idea of which is to surprise the opponent and avoid his home preparation. Given that rapid and blitz chess are becoming more and more important, it seems to me that such an approach is justified. In addition, in order to help the reader absorb the material more easily, this second edition includes tests, sometimes where the reader needs to calculate concrete variations, but more often to apply a typical idea, standard manoeuvre, etc. It is impossible to keep all the variations in one’s head, but if you can remember the essence of the position, then even in an unfamiliar position you should be able to find a decent plan.

I should warn the reader that he will not find the answers to every one of his questions, but he should be able to make use of it in his games. ‘Make use’ in the figurative sense, that is, otherwise your opponents might accuse you of cheating!

The book is aimed at players of all levels, because the laws of the KID are the same for all players, be they beginners or GMs.
