With Black , I am a KID player , and like very much Gallagher's book
"Play the King's Indian"
I am a correspondance player , so I consult it durig the opening of each KID
Recently my opponent chose against me Gligoric variation
1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 g6 3 Nc3 Bg7 4 e4 d6 5 Nf3 O-O 6 Be2 e5 7 O-O Nc6 8 Be3
I looked for it in the book , but I was unable to find it : it had simply been omitted
Maybe somebody can explain me why?


Read page 7 and then turn over and read page 8. Smiley

It might just be mistaken memory on my part (I played the King's Indian as a kid but that was a while back ...  Sad ), and I'm afraid I don't have a board to hand, so this may be completely wrong, but I thought Black's "approved" response to 8.Be3 (i.e. with 7.0-0 Nc6 already in) was 8...Re8! intending 9.d5 Nd4!

Probably nothing wrong with 8...Ng4 either, though, especially if you want to keep a bit more tension in the position.



I think you are correct, but I thought Ng4 is seen most often, and may be a bit better for black for the reason you stated -- it holds the tension in the center.  In db analysis, Re8 has a slightly higher performance rating than does Ng4, but the disparity between strength and performance seems to indicate a slight edge in favor of Ng4.   Both have lower Perf Ratings than Strength Ratings but the gap is smaller for Ng4.

As white I find Ng4 to be trickier to play against.
  

I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission.

If sometimes we fly too close to the sun, at least this shows we are spreading our wings.

It's in there, but it only makes a cameo appearance!

His "repertoire" move against it is Na6.  It's in Chapter 6, and the note for it is on page 93.  He has it listed as White playing Be3 on move 7, Black replies with Na6 and then White transposes to the line you've given with 8.0-0 (without the Nc6!).

IF, you've already played Nc6 after white castles, and then white elects to play Be3 instead of d5, I believe this is not the Gligoric system "proper" and hitting the B with Ng4 is correct, after which exhanging on d4 is probably very playable for black, and potentially annoying for white.
