I am not quite sure about the moves you give, but There was a very good book on the Averbakh (published in 1996 by Cadogan) by the Icelandic GM Margeir Petursson

Averbach variation of KID

I saw a game between Ivkov and Gheorghiu that begins in this way:
1. d4 nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 g6 4. nc3 bg7 5. e4 d6 in which black deviates from benoni entering in a KID- Averbach variation. Of course black deviates from the normal plan with a pawn action on the king's side, attacking on the queenside. This variation cuts off a lot of white possible plans (he can deviate from this variation choosing the fianchetto variation that is not so dangerous for black) and seems to be not so sharp as the variations that involve the ...e5 break whit the kingside pawn action.
What do yoo think about?
Are there good books on KID that cover this variation?
