But if you're looking for a KIA forum, you should try this one: www.KIA-WORLD.net

I think it should definitely be on Flank Openings.  This forum is for the King's Indian Defence.  Let's make this the last post here.

I am going to post this in both King’s Indian and Flank openings because I stupidly asked the same question in both forums

Thanks people for all your advice and comments………

AmateurDragoneer:
I have the Dunnington on order, Thanks for the confirmation.

In MCO-13, the KIA is under Flank Openings (6 pages, pp 679-684, and the KID under Indian Defense Systems (32 pages, pp 570-601. In NCO, the KIA is under the Reti Opening (4 pages, pp 15-18), while the KID (48 pages, pp. 494-541). So the comparison of attention is overwhelmingly towards the KID. In the ECO system, I found 44 King’s Indians, of which only two, A07 and A08, are KIA. The rest, A48, A49 and E60 through E99 are all KID.


alumbrado:
But as alumbrado says, in my beginning I did want to concentrate on one opening as White and one opening as Black, and “want an easy-to-learn off-the-shelf” system. At the tender young age of 65, I just want to be competitive with my kids.

How can I find the last two flank updates?

Thanks for the Maddox CD suggestion, I will try and get it.

Reading the finer print, I see that it does say “Complete King’s Indian”

So there seems to be legitimacy to post KIA questions in either Flank Openings or King’s Indian. Can we come to an agreement on one forum?

If you're done playing word games,  Wink check the chesspublishing.com website's ECO codes and you'll see that the KIA belongs under Flank Openings except when it arises via 1. e4 c5 or 1. e4 e6 in which case it belongs under the Anti-Sicilians or French, respectively.  Undecided

The title of this forum is the Complete King's Indian, not the Complete King's Indian Defense.   Wink

I would believe that KIA would fit into the "Complete King's Indian."

Nope, sorry. The forums are structured around the subscription sections and as there is no subscription exclusively for the KIA, there is no KIA forum. If you want to post on the KIA, it depends on what opening it arises from. If you are looking for just the straight KIA (1. Nf3 followed by g3, Bg2, d3 Nbd2, etc.) then post in the Flank Openings Forum. For KIA formations against other openings like the French and Sicilian (1. e4 e6 2. d3 or 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 followed with a setup with Nf3, g3, Bg2, d3, c3, etc.) you should post in the French and Anti-Sicilian Forums respectively. Hopefully, that should answer all your questions.
