Trends in the KID Saemisch 9.Rc1(E84) 2012(TWIC 944)

Schandorf's repertoire line against the KID Saemish Panno(in Playing 1.d4 The Indian Defences),

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.f3 0–0 6.Nge2 a6 7.Be3 Nc6 8.Qd2 Rb8 9.Rc1!? is proving to be an effective line against the ...b5 idea.


Here is a recent game in this line from TWIC 944. Black won the game but this was not the fault of the opening.

Nikolov,Mo(2542)-Cabezas Ayala,I(2315)
King’s Indian Saemish Panno 9.Rc1[E84]
XVIII Navalmoral Open ESP(2.8),06.12.2012

Position 1

White to Play


Position 2
Black has an extra pawn but there are opposite color bishops. Assess the position. Does white have realistic drawing chances? What is the plan for black to squeeze the most from the position?

Black to Play
