Thanks Konstriktor, Tonyro.

I could not see a full layout of the two parts provided, but guess Part 2 has Fianchetto as the core of it, as this has been arguably the biggest challenge in the last couple of decades. And 4PA, 5.h3 Modern Makagonov (does h3 and Be3 have a name?!), plus minors (Smyslov, other early deviations).

Yeah, good what I see so far. Strong player (at just under 2700) hugely experienced in this area, explaining clearly. What's not to love?
Huh, well, apart from the cost.

There is one line in the repertoire tree that appears to illustrate the transpo to his main Makogonov coverage via 5.h3 O-O 6.Be3 e5 7.d5 a5 8.Nf3 Na6, etc.

Confirmed.

5.h3 is dealt with in part 2. He had to make a cut somewhere.

I actually pulled out my wallet and bought the course yesterday with video's. It's my first course I bought on Chessable and I must say it is excellent stuff.

The video's sure cost a lot though Shocked
I only watched one hour (on holidays in the Loire in a hammock Cool) and I think Jones has a great objective and slightly dry style of presentation. The fact that he is a KID guru certainly adds to the credibility if the course.

His recommendation of 6...Nbd7 and 7...e5 (instead of 6...e5 and 7...Nc6) vs the Classical is very interesting.

Is it just me, or is this key and popular h3 line not covered:

1.d4 Nf6
2.c4 g6
3.Nc3 Bg7
4. e4 d6
5. h3 O-O
6.Be3

He only goes in via 5.Nf3 and 6.h3

Can someone confirm? Or tell me where it is, if it’s buried there?

It’s certainly not guaranteed to transpose, and often does not. White can play with f3, g4, Ne2-g3, in addition to going back into the older Nf3/h3 lines should he so choose.

Thanks!

Looks like former ChessPub columnist and KID guru Gawain Jones has just released the first half of his KID course on Chessable, and it's a whopper. I'm glad he covered both his pet 6...Nbd7!? 7.O-O e5 8.Be3 Qe7!? and 6...e5 against the Classical. This course also covers the Makogonov with 5.h3 e5 6.d5 a5 & the Samisch for those wondering, with 6.Be3 c5 being the main chunk of course.
