In our continued look at King's Indian Defense (KID) Positions, here's one from a recent online game of mine. It is black to move. What should I've done?

  1. 13...f5 should be good enough. I prefer that instead of other possibility N:e4.

  2. 13...f5 is what first came to my mind. and white does not have any nice way to get out of that pin(i think so). so a possible variation might be

    13...f5 14. Ra3 fxe4 15.Nxe4 Nxe4 16. Bxe4 f5 hitting at the bishop and following it up with ...Re8+. Althought its not clear since white can now bring the rook Re3.

    I might have blundered somewhere, as I did not keep this on the board to analyze.

  3. Yes, the best response would have been 13...f5!

    I missed it, but I was playing fast chess. Still, I was fortunate to find a way to win anyways.
