August 2003

Hi everyone,

I am afraid that I haven't got any personal King's Indians worth reporting as nearly all my opponents played 1 e4. Still, the summer is full of tournaments so I have plenty of material.

The September issue will be on time!

In Kaidanov - Fiorito we explore an old line in the Averbakh which often leads to spectacular games, and this was no exception.

Position after 10 Qd2.

Nielsen - Michelakis produced an emphatic victory for White after his novelty 10 Bxf6

while in Cebalo - Pavlovic White got crushed in a 4 Pawns Attack after he went down a line that is known to lose by force.

We finish off this month with 4 Saemisch's:

In two of them, Studnicka - Klima and Vila Gazquez-Avrukh we explore some typical Black queen sacrifices.

Meanwhile, in Nguyen Anh Dung-To Quoc Khanh Black adopts a slightly dubious line in the Panno but finds White in a very obliging mood.

And finally in Pelletier - Gallagher I managed to work one of my favourite King's Indians into the issue.

Enjoy, till we meet again,

Joe Gallagher
