1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. Be2 O-O 6. Nf3 e5 7. O-O h6 is analyzed in the latest ChessPub edition by GM Petrov. It is not 6...Na6, but may also appeal to independent spirits who want an alternative to the main lines.

The notes mention the game Tan, J - Demchenko,A Chess.com INT 2022 won by White. I assume the player of the White pieces is the former columnist at ChessPublishing. Congratulations (belated) on the victory!

Historical note:  7...h6 8. Re1 Nbd7 transposes to Sherwin-Tal 1958.  James Sherwin (who will soon be 90) mentioned Tal's ...h6 innovation on the Perpetual Chess Podcast not long ago.

Here is the game with musical accompaniment. (In the first edition of ECO, Hort cited it as slightly better for White after 15. Be3.)

I believe 7. Bf4 has generally been considered the main independent move.

I did a nice discovery here, I think black's best might be 7...e5!? The critical line goes 8.dxe5 dxe5 9.Bxe5 Bg4 10.Nd2 Re8 11.f4 Nc5 (or Nb4) 12.O-O Nd3 13.Nf3 Nxe5 14.Nxe5 Be6

Ok, it could transpose to 6…e5 and 7…Na6, but as far as I know one of the points of 6…Na6 is exactly against 7.dxe5 for which we have to stick to the move order starting with 6…Na6, right?... although I’m not an expert on this variation… let me know your comments.

if white insists he can still play 6...Na6 7.O-O e5 8.dxe5 dxe5 9.Qxd8 Rxd8 10.Bg5 (or 10.Be3), not dangerous at all but maybe not what black would like to see either

I've seen at least one Perelshteyn video in Chesslectures.com on this variation, in which he specializes. He really knows the line.

Yeah, it's very good. I also have the Chebanenko Slav one by Kritz, that's very good as well.

I think that indeed the main idea of 6...Na6 is to avoid the Exchange Variation (something like 7. 0-0 e5 8. de would be a particularly harmless version of it).

I believe 7. Bf4 has generally been considered the main independent move.  I notice that Panczyk and Ilczuk (in their Classical KID book of a few years ago) thought 7. Nd2 deserving of attention.

Yes, but I assume there must be some specific lines with 6…Na6.

Besides ChessPublishing and the Bojkov DVD from Chessbase (very good!), there are chapters on 6.../7...Na6 in older books by Gallagher (Play the King's Indian), Golubev (Understanding the King's Indian), and Comas Fabrego (True Lies in Chess).

Though these are all to some extent outdated theoretically, they have some good discussions of strategic themes and move orders. I especially liked Comas Fabrego's coverage.

6…Na6 in the KID

Hi,
I would like to study the variation 6…Na6 in the KID
(1.d4 Nf6, 2.c4 g6, 3.Nc3 Bg7, 4.e4 d6, 5.Nf3 0-0, 6.Be2 Na6)
Where can I find this?
I know there is a video by GM Perelshteyn.
Has anybody watched this video?
Do you know any other sources for this variation, is there anything available in chess publishing?

Thanks
