The Fianchetto Variation in the King’s Indian 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nf3 Bg7 4.g3 0-0 5.Bg2 d6 6.0-0, is named for White’s development of his light squared bishop to g2, and is one of the most popular lines at the grandmaster level, with Korchnoi once its most notable practitioner. This method of development is on completely different lines than other King’s Indian variations. Here, Black’s normal plan of attack can hardly succeed, as White’s kingside is more solidly defended than in most KID variations. This video is part 1 of the King’s Indian with Bg2 series.
