Brought to you by Chessvideos.tv!

Learn about an important pawn formation for white in the King's Indian. This knowledge can in some cases be applied to similar pawn structures arising for example from a modern defence.

Thanks for the lesson Zibbit. Not being a KID player yet knowing the Averbakh it is not played often at the top it's fun to try and figure out why. Is it because black can close the Queenside or because he can hit the centre before the wedge is set up? Anyway, great vid, I enjoy learning about new (to me!) pawn structures.
Any chance you can look at some french pawn formations? Only stuff you know (ie Bg7 in a french KIA, c4 in the exchange, or the Portich Winawer line). I realise these are more generic than the wedge, but your expertise will make up for that!!
Best part of the video; 'look' at these pieces!! Has me laughing laughing when you hit the high notes.

you mentioned željezničar.
ž is pronounced as you would pronounce J in french names like Jean or Jasques.
the elje part you said ok.
z is pronounced same as in english.
č is pronouced as ch in cherry.
ar is pronounced the same.
sorry if this is offensive, I studied linguistiscs so I notice these things :)
anyhow great vid.

Phew, fortunately this is a chess lesson not a lesson on pronouncing "željezničar". And the chess content was pretty great!!!! :bom: :alien:

I love getting pawn blockades like this or similar when playing the Saemisch variation of the Kings Indian as white. However, I often found I got into trouble when black did a timely minor piece sacrifice on g4. It looks like the way you set up the opening though, black wasn't able to pull it off.
Thanks chessvideos.tv for the free videos. It's what makes your site great.

Thanks for the vid! Very interesting concept. Although I play neither 1.d4 nor the King's Indian, the whole idea of attacking early and forcing the opponent to kill their own counterplay before it's even begun is really interesting, and I wonder what other openings this could be applied to. At the moment I can't think of anything though...anybody have any ideas?

Just to add something else, not only are the black knights negated the f4 square as stated in the video, it seems like it would only get to d4 via b5. So, keeping black's knights on the board is a good thing with this pawn formation because they should be inferior. I also like the idea of getting a white knight on f5 via g3 either when the square is vacant or when after capturing it opens up e4 for the other knight. Good stuff, and definately usable in many saemisch type lines of the Kings Indian. Unfortunately I've been reduced to coffee house chess with white in the recent past.

If Željezničar is tough to pronounce, you can always abbreviate it as Željo :D. It's a renowned BiH football (soccer) club.

Well the King's Indian isn't played very often at the top. The thing with the King's Indian is that white has so many available lines. I don't think there are any problems with the Averbakh variation but if black knows what he is doing he will probably avoid the wedge/bind.

Regarding french structures I will probably have something to say about those in the future!
