Yesterday in banter blitz, Giri played the KID, and faced the Karpov/Makagonov h3 + Be3.  During the first ten or so moves he made a number of remarks such as, "You see how much knowledge I have in th...

Kings Indian by Cheparinov on ModernChess
Hey,
I was wondering if anyone already had a look at this. What are his recommendations? Apparently he tends to go for sidelines, might be interesting.

After 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 does it matter if Black plays 4…0-0 instead of 4…d6? I’ve heard that 4…0-0 5.e5 isn’t good for White, so I’m wondering if there are any lines White can try where ...
