Blitz chess (also known as speed or fast chess) is a type of chess in which each player is given less time to consider their moves than normal tournament time controls allow. Openings, tactics and strategy are same.

The Kings Indian Defense is one of the most solid defenses in chess. Black builds an extremely strong defense around his king and then looks to counter attack depending on where white’s structure is weak.

Play normally starts in the Kings Indian Defense with the moves 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6.

This defense is a hypermodern idea that allows white to control the center of the board early on while black looks to develop his minor pieces early on and move his pawns towards the center later on in the game.

Although the Kings Indian Defense is a very solid opening for black it is also very passive in the early stages and if you are a very aggressive player you will not enjoy this opening. Much like any opening in chess, though, in the middle stages of this opening will allow for many opportunities for counter play.


  1. I like WGM Maltsevskaya but she always looks so sad 🙁 .

  2. She should reject draw because guy had 1 sec and he hadh't pressed the clock and she would win hahaha

  3. The WGM played excellent defense at the end. Great imagination.

  4. Three comments:
    1) What a bloody brilliant game!
    2) The …Be3 mating idea was genius
    3) If it's not out of line, Miss Maltsevskaya is utterly gorgeous!

  5. Combat tactics, Mr. Ryan.  By turning into the torpedo, Ramius closed the distance before it could arm itself. 😁

  6. Чо всё по английскому?

  7. Like a Master Jedi fight . Use your imagination
