    Lesson 4: take opportunities when they come, the king needs space as well as defence.

    Hey Trent, thanks for the games and insights. Reading your lessons had my mind revisiting Simon Webb's book, "Chess for Tigers". A very helpful little book for putting all things in perspective.
    Get into chess, its a lifetime of enjoyment!

    I prefer ... c5 or ...d5.

    This is totally unsound. "Taking opportunities" is one thing, wild sacs are quite another. Black gets only two pawns for his piece, and also loses a lot of time. Although White's K is somewhat displaced, he gains quick development to go along with the extra piece. 3... d5 would be a favorable French because of White's wasted move f3.

    5.Kd2 avoids dropping the P with check. Then 5... Qxe4 6. Nf3 followed by gaining more tempi against the Q. This means that in some lines, White can return the piece for pawns and have a big development lead.

    Quote Originally Posted by TCN

    7. Nc3, and if ...Qxd4+ 8 Qxd4 cxd4 9. Nb5 regaining one P, and without the Qs there is no attack. Or 7... Qf5+ 8. Nf3 cxd4 9. Bd3 Qc5 10. Ne4 Qb6 11. Rf1 d5 12. Neg5 with possibilities of Nxf7 in some lines as well as castling by hand with Kg1.

    White needs to play 7. d5. Black could have replied 7... Ng4 8.fxg4 exd4 spoiling White's pawn structure, or 7... exd4 8. Bxd4 Nc6 9. Be3 d5 seizing the initiative.

    8... Nd4. May as well seize a central square while you can. It is not well placed on e7, although in many KID positions it's unavoidable.

    Could grab the Pd5 followed in some lines by ...Be6, Qa5. Also, 11. ... Qa5 then b5 has more point. For defensive ideas, maybe ...Re8 so Bh6 can be answered by ...Bh8.

    This type of attack is very dangerous. Black hasn't taken proper steps against it and is quickly overwhelmed.

    A good finish.
