Jan Werle: Beat the King's Indian

GM Jan Werle of the Netherlands suggests 5.f3 – the Saemisch Variation. Guess what: you can also use the same antidote against the Benoni! Jan, who has published a ChessBase DVD on the subject, shows you how this works – in this video stream with ChessBase India. It is the perfect 1½ lesson to build your understanding of this opening.
