Can Black avoid pawn storm lines in KID?
I'm considering alternative defenses against 1.d4.  Is it possible for Black to avoid playing all out kingside pawn storm lines with f5, f4, g5, etc?  That is, I'd like to play positions with...

Hi all,
I am wondering why 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 0-0 5.Nf3 d6 6.Be2 c5 isn't played more?  I think it is due to 7. 0-0 Nc6 8.d5 Na5 and now 9Bf4??  Is that the case? 
Thanks,<br /...
