I recently played a game against a local player who played the King's Indian Attack against me (I play the sicilian). Though it isn't the best anti-sicilian system, I have the most trouble against it. Here's the opening section of the game I played. (Ironically I ended up winning on tactics, though I had a worse position in the opening)
B st it, what are the typical plans for each side? Do you have any illustrative games? Thanks.
If you play Sicilian as black you may wish to look at Gambit's
Anti-Sicilians for Black.
Also Richard Palliser has just released a book called Fighting The Anti-Sicilians..........both books would give a method of dealing against the KIA.
In these positions I like to play a king side fianchetto linked with a maroczy bind with a later e5. I prefer to play the kings knight to e7 so I can play a later f5 break. See below:
This is an OTB league game by me as Black a couple of yrs ago against a KIA and demostrates the kind of way I like to play aginast it!! (I think Black is doing rather well).
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d3 g6 4.g3 Bg7 5.Bg2 e5 6.0-0 Nge7 7.
