Renowned coach IM Milovan Ratkovic reveals…

Finding a strong weapon against 1.d4, that is solid yet dangerous for White is not a simple task.

White picks solid lines, making it hard for Black to obtain a good counter-play with realistic winning chances.

That’s why most games after 1.d4 either end in a draw or solely controlled by White.

King’s Indian Defense is different.

Trusted by the top attacking minds from Kasparov, Fischer, Tal to Nakamura, and Rajabov, KID has a well-deserved reputation of “1.d4 slayer”.

If you are looking for an opening system to beat the 1.d4, then KID should be your top pick.

In this new 10-hour Opening Lab on King’s Indian Defense, IM Milovan Ratkovic reveals everything you need to know to destroy opponents of any level in a vicious attacking style of Tal and Fischer!

Few words of warning…

The position on the board tends to be sharp and complicated. If you want to beat white after 1.d4… this is the way to go.

This opening is perfect for both attacking and positional players.

If you like to attack and take charge of the game, there are razor-sharp variations just for you!

On the other hand, if you are a positional player pick from one of the safer options to outplay your opponent.

Here is what you’ll learn:

  • All-around bulletproof opening preparation against 1.d4 based on King’s Indian Defense as played by Ding Liren, Svidler and Memedyarov! This is a very powerful, yet easy-to-learn system that will serve you a lifetime.
  • Complete plans breakdown for EVERY popular KID variations including the Main Line, Saemisch, 4 Pawns Attack, Kramer, and Makogonov! IM Ratkovic gives you a full mindmap of the opening to make sure you have a solid weapon against anything white can attempt.
