Despite White bringing home the full point with the novelty 17. Qd1, Black should be totally fine, and maybe more. Take the following short analysis for instance:

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. Be2 O-O 6. Bg5 Na6 7. Qd2 e5 8. d5
Nc5 9. f3 a5 10. h4 c6 11. Nh3 cxd5 12. cxd5 Bd7 13. g4 b5!? 14. Nxb5
(14. Nf2
Qb6 15. h5 was I.Farago - N.Lorand, Balatoni 2009, and now Black should
equalize fairly easily with many ideas, one being b4!? 16. Ncd1 Bb5 17. h6 Bh8 18. Bxb5 Qxb5
19. Qe2 Qb7! followed by b3 and doubling up rooks on the c-file.
) 14...
Nfxe4 15. fxe4 f6 16. Be3 Nxe4 17. Qd1!?N f5 18. gxf5 Ng3! 19. Rh2!
(19.
Rg1?! is less good because of the vulnerability of the Nh3 and the looseness
of the g1-rook itself, for example 19...Nxf5 20. Bg5 Qb6 21. a4 Nd4! with a strong attack.
) 19... Nxe2 20. Qxe2 Qxh4+ 21. Bf2 Qb4+ 22. Nc3 Rxf5
when the duel threats of 23...Rh5! (an usual idea) and 23...e4! give White
migraines.

Fascinating Line in the Averbakh

Hello!

In Gallagher's book, "Play the King's Indian" he makes mention of an exciting subvariation in the Averbakh that involves a piece sacrifice. The moves leading up to it are as follows:
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Be2 0-0 6.Bg5 Na6 7.Qd2 e5 8.d5 Nc5 9.f3 a5 10.g4 c6 11.h4 cxd5 12.cxd5 Bd7 13.Nh3 b5!? 14.Nxb5 Nfxe4!?

Has anyone played this before? I do not see it mentioned in the updates or the forum. The complications appear to be quite mind-boggling (that's why I love the KID!). I wonder if David will be covering it in the column or in Vol. 2 of his KID books. I look forward to everyone's comments on this line.
