Can Black use the Kings Indian Defense always?

by Gil

Can KID be used against most openings? Against which openings can it be used?


Hi Gil,
yes, Black can always play the Kings Indian SETUP against all White setups. If you play it against 1.e4 then the Black setup changes its name to Pirc Defense or Modern Defense.
It just depends how you adjust the moves as Black to fit your plans because the Kings Indian Defense SETUP is very flexible.
You also can use the Kings Indian SETUP as White, then this opening is called: Kings Indian Attack.
