Since nobody could comment on my previous question, here is an easier one:

I played another KI game today and it also went horribly wrong. White played a fianchetto setup but with the knight on e2 and the pawn on e3.

1.c4 Nf6 2.Nc3 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 0-0 5.e3 d6 6.Nge2 e5 7.d4

What am I supposed to do here, play for Nbd7 Re8 h5 and e4?

Now I value ideas and understanding above variations regarding openings and I have plenty of books to consult: Starting out KI, Art of The KI, Bronstein on the KI, Beating the Anti-KI, KI battleplans, etc etc. Guess what! None of them handle this positiontype at all.

So can anybody who has played the KI for a while give a few useful comments.

Kings Indian Fianchetto (9.dxe5 dxe5)

Hi everybody.

I played my first King's Indian (it's been 5 years since the last time). I'm gonna go with that opening. I've been playing the nimzo/queens indian these last years but they didn't suit me, it's hard to get a real benko Gambit these days and the Dutch Lines don't suit me much either (something just feels wrong about moving that f-pawn so early =)  ) so the King's Indian it is!

Anyway I looked through Gallagher's "Starting Out" and the game went:

Anders Livner 2341 - Armin Namini 2192
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 0-0 5.0-0 Nbd7 6.0-0 Nbd7 7.Nc3 e5 8.e4 a6 9.dxe5 dxe5 10.Qc2 c6 11.h3 Qc7

After the game my opponent (who has played this variation many years and also plays the King's Indian as black!) said that the queen is much better at e7 since it hinders white's plan of an early c5. I have seen a lof of master games with Qc7 though...

12.Be3 b5 13.Nd2 Rd8 14.b4 Rb8 15.c5 Nf8 16.Nb3 Ne6 17.Rad1 Bd7 18.Ne2 Nh5 19.Bd2 Rf8 20.Bc3 Rbd8 21.Qb2 Bc8 22.Nd3 f6

White had an advantage the entire game and eventually won, the rest of the game was embarrassing. I wanted to play f5 on a number of occasions but the position never called for it...

Can anybody here give some instructional comments on this typical positiontype? How are you supposed to play...
