The King's Indian remains a hugely popular opening at all levels of chess - unsurprising given the attacking opportunities it offers. In many of the ultra-sharp main lines, both sides can fight for the initiative. White frequently wins the queenside battle but this often turns out to be a Pyrrhic victory as Black wins the war by checkmating on the kingside! Black is hunting the enemy king and this gives him a psychological edge in practical play.
Here David Vigorito presents an aggressive repertoire for Black based on the main lines. Vigorito is renowned for his attention to detail and creativity, and his repertoire is full of innovative ideas. Whats more, his lucid explanations of the key plans and tactics will benefit all players. Volume 2 of his work deals with the Four Pawns Attack, the Fianchetto Variation, the Averbakh Variation and many other lines.
Attacking Chess is a series of opening repertoire books which focus on traditional attacking openings, as well as creative and forceful ways to play openings that are not always associated with attacking chess. It provides ambitious repertoires designed for players of all levels.
David Vigorito is an International Master from the United States. His previous books have received great praise and he is fast becoming one of the worlds leading chess writers.
