In the KID - Black cramps his own position, doesn't claim the centre, etc....and yet, Black can still reach equality.
White, In the KID tends to take full advantage of blacks development and grabs the centre, yet, despite best efforts, black can still equalise....
So....I should imagine playing e3 is weak....
^its been played 13 times, with very little sucess for white.
the most common move for black in this position seems to be 4.d5
