Semko Semkov "Kill K.I.D"

Скачать For a line that isn’t played at the top levels (almost never in fact), the 4-Pawns Attack (4PA) against the King’s Indian Defense sure does receive a lot of attention from book publishers. Anatoly Vaisser wrote BEATING THE KING’S INDIAN and BENONI in 1997, Dunnington recommended it in ATTACKING WITH 1.d4 in 2001, then came THE FEARSOME FOUR PAWNS ATTACK by Konikowski and Soszynski in 2006. Finally Semko Semkov, of Chess Stars Publishing, has released KILL KID 1, a truly unique and original look at this aggressive try against the King’s Indian. 
Semkov’s repertoire book covers all of the major Black tries against 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.f4. His main recommendations (after 5…0-0 6.Nf3) are: 

6…c5 7.d5 e6 8.Be2 exd5 9.cxd5 and now: 
9…Re8 10.e5 dxe5 11.fxe5 Ng4 12.e6!? fxe6 13.d6 
9…Bg4 10.0-0 Nbd7 11.h3!? 
9…b5 10.e5 
6…Na6!? 7.Bd3! 
There are other lines, but that’s the majority of the book. All of the lines are quite aggressive, in true 4PA spirit. Against 9…Bg4, White tends to avoid moves like a4 and Re1 in favor of g4, h4, g5, etc. Practically it’s very dangerous! 
There are a couple of great bonuses to this book that separate it from all of the other 4PA literature: 
The vast majority of the Benoni coverage is completely new and original. The book is mostly devoid of regurgitated game segments and is mostly the author’s home preparation, refined over the years. He explains why the previous recommendation against 9…Re8 (12.Bg5) isn’t quite good enough to really be recommended in a repertoire book. The analysis contained in the book can’t be found anywhere, and will certainly surprise your opponents when it’s played. Most of the other 4PA books just rehash old material and recommendations, but not this one. 
Semkov covers alternate move orders that a KID player might play, for instance Old Indian move orders, Modern move orders, or Benoni move orders where …Nf6 is delayed, etc. This is NOT common practice, and is incredibly refreshing and useful, since normally you’d have to go elsewhere for this coverage. 
The format! The format to KILL KID 1 is identical to the popular Chess Stars "The … Sicilian” series. Each line receives 3 chapters – Quick Repertoire, Step by Step, and Illustrative Games. First you’re given a general outline of the main lines, then you’re given all of the lines and sublines next, then you’re given full and instructive games to acquaint yourself with typical middlegames and endgames. 
Overall KILL KID 1 is a great book, and a definite contribution to chess literature. Surely someone will navigate through the treacherous lines given by Semkov and show that Black is okay somewhere, but I’m also sure that players who study this book diligently will leave quite a few unsuspecting KID players weeping in their wake!
