Kotronias on the King’s Indian Mar del Plata II the King’s Indian Defence is one of Black’s most dynamic and aggressive responses to 1.d4. A favourite weapon of both Fischer and Kasparov, it remains a popular choice at all levels of play.

In this, the third volume of the Kotronias on the King’s Indian series, grandmaster Vassilios Kotronias presents the second part of his world-class repertoire against the famous Mar del Plata variation, starting from the position after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Nf3 0–0 6.Be2 e5 7.0–0 Nc6 8.d5 Ne7, with the focus on 9.b4, 9.Nd2 and all other sensible alternatives to 9.Ne1. Once again, Kotronias provides a turbo-charged repertoire for Black, with a plethora of novelties and original analysis.

As well as providing detailed analysis, the author also shares his considerable knowledge of typical middlegame themes, both positional and tactical. A special selection of test positions is provided, enabling the reader to sharpen his tactical skills and increase his middlegame understanding.

Indian Mar del Plata II

Vassilios Kotronias became Greek Champion for the tenth time in December 2014. He is feared for his profound opening preparation, and is one of the world’s foremost experts on the King’s Indian Defence.

“I came slowly to the conclusion that Kotronias has actually done a superb job of organizing the material, and that Quality Chess has also done an excellent job of presenting the material. In particular, I felt that the main variations in each chapter very strongly reflected typical logical play for both sides in this variation, and that the large number of diagrams made it easy to follow without needing a board. This made it so much easier to give each variation a place in my head and to extract the typical themes from each line.”
