Ray Keene's Flank Openings used to imply that the Kings Indian Attack was a forced win for White. In this game anyway, Houdini seems to agree. I found on review that I'd had the position at move 9 as Black in 1969 when I had lashed out with .. b5 and as White in 1971 when my opponent punted .. a5.

In the train on the way to the tournament I commented that my opponent was apt to attack the advanced e pawn with g6 and Bg7 and I had recently been trying the idea of trying to sneak in c3 and d4 in those positions where they try to capture on e5.

It seems to have worked! Well done.
