Modernized: The King's Indian Defense
Grandmaster Dejan Bojkov of Bulgaria loves the King's Indian Defense.
Having played it from his youth after reading Bronstein's great book on the Zurich 1953 International Tournament, his love for the Kings Indian Defense is on display throughout this volume, which is filled with creative ideas and strategies, tactics, and especially those shocking shots characteristic of the King's Indian.
The lines Bojkov recommends to you often involve giving up the center with ...e5xd4 and then using ...c7-c6 and eventually ...d6-d5 to break it all open at the right moment.
