IM Rafael Klovsky (USA)

  Turn the tables on Black, and play for an attack against the Black king using the Four Pawns Attack versus the King’s Indian Defense! In this video, IM Rafael Klovsky - a trainer of the national teams of Ukraine and Moldava - provides the viewer with the strategical, positional, and tactical knowledge required to master the sharp and aggressive Four Pawns Attack (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.f4). Usually in the King’s Indian Defense it is Black who seeks to play actively and counterattack on the kingside, but the Four Pawns Attack serves notice that White is on the alert and prepared to take the battle directly to Black’s king.
