Bologan, Victor: The King's Indian
The King's Indian is one of the most interesting and aggressive defences Black can choose. The World Champions Robert James Fischer and Garry Kasparov used to play this openingoften and with great success, and also today's word-class players are employing it frequently, like for instance Boris Gelfand, Alexei Shirov and Teimour Radjabov.
On this DVD, Viktor Bologan (Elo 2690) presents a complete King's Indian repertoire for Black. In 21 chapters the Grandmaster deals with all possible white reactions, showing the subtleties in main and side variations. The DVD is suitable for both the beginning and the advanced King's Indian adherent.
Bologan's explanations are based on his own experience and analyses. Yet the top player knows only too well to who he owes his successes: Grandmaster Zigurds Lanka, who once taught young Viktor the King's Indian and thus helped him to become a Grandmaster - since according to Bologan, the necessary norms were achieved... of course with the King's Indian!
