This is Why I Play the King’s Indian Defense!

Check out this game from the Russian Superfinal.  The game was Inarkiev – Dubov from round three.

First, let’s take a look at the final position.  You can use this as an exercise if you like.  There is a forced mate for Black in the final position.  It’s White to move, and Inarkiev chose to resign here.

Here’s the entire game:

I love the KID.  I really enjoy the sacrificial chaos that can arise from those positions.

Game of the Day September 3, 2018

I have decided that in addition to the puzzle of the day feature, that I will also be doing a game of the day feature.  I will be starting with game one of the first world championship match, and then each day I will add the next game sequentially in world championship history.

So together we will eventually see all of the games from every match.

Here we go!
