Author Victor Bologan about his DVD: If chess players are in Iceland, they usually pay tribute to the genius of Bobby Fischer, the 11th World Champion, by visiting his grave in Selfoss in Reykjavik. With this DVD I also want to express my gratitude to Fischer: for his great contribution to chess in general and because he helped to make the Kings Indian more popular in particular. As a junior, when I was ten years old, my coach advised me to study the openings of Fischer and I discovered the Kings Indian. Later I learned about the different approaches Black has in the Kings Indian. He can keep his structure flexible and put his pawns on d6 and c6; he can play the sharp and principled Nc6 in the classical lines and in some sidelines he can sacrifice a pawn with
b5 as in the Benko.
Top players such as Geller, Smirin, Kasparov, Radjabov, Nakamura and Ding Liren all played and play the Kings Indian and they all have a different style, a different approach. When preparing the material for this DVD I studied the games of these experts, checked analyses with modern engines and used a lot of material from correspondence databases. Every day my Kings Indian vocabulary got better, richer, and more varied. At the same time my confidence and my belief in the Kings Indian also got bigger. If you study this DVD carefully and solve the interactive exercises you will also enrich your chess vocabulary, your Kings Indian vocabulary, build up confidence in the Kings Indian and your chess and win more games.
