Agree - it is a great concept but they should have asked a better player to write it. I would live with the long sentences if I get some meaninful insights from a strong player.

Nevertheless the topic "pawn structures in the King´s Indian" would be worthy to be written about.


I agree, check Pawn Structure Chess, my only complaint with that book is that it doesn't have twice the material!

Yes, that is exactly what I meant in the first blog when I have opened the thread. I am not a native English speacker but normally I rarely need a dictoniary when I read chess books written in English.
The main problem I have is that the title of the chapters doesn´t fit to the explainations that the author gives later ("wait and see").
Nevertheless the topic "pawn structures in the King´s Indian" would be worthy to be written about.

Wow, I strongly disliked the excerpt.  Difficult to read, awkward phrases...

However, two quick questions come up:
1. Will it be available in English and when and through which publishing house
2. The author doesn't seem "that strong" considering others who wrote recently on this topic. I would like to see the book first before deciding on buying.

After Robert Bellin and Piero Ponzzetto (probably spent wrongly) book on KID, there were not much activity in discussing the positional or structural aspects of KID. I have the above mentioned book but it won't help someone who is playing KID for some time and knows the "usual" concepts already. Hopefully this book will take it to next level.

I have no info about the book, but my guess would be that the "wait and see approach" applies to Boleslavsky Wall positions and the like (see Pawn Power in Chess).

New book: Winning Pawn Play in the Indian Defenses

Hi,

I´ve noticed that a new book is coming out about pawn structures in the Indian Defenses (mainly King´s Indian):

Henrique Marinho
Winning Pawn Play in the Indian Defenses

https://www.schachversand.de/d/detail/buecher/11903.html

In general I think it is good that there is a book about this issue, because I consider my pet opening KI not as a tactical opening but also (perhaps more?!) as a positional opening. There is a lot of positional concepts like weak squares, blockade elements,… in it.
What makes me concern a little bit is the title of the different chapters like “wait and see approach” which confused me because in a pawn storm race of White and Black I wouldn´t “wait” and “see” if I would play White or Black. The explanation is better and relativises my last concern.
Any opinions, remarks,… about the book?
