A triumph of opening preparation.
Opening: E66: King's Indian: fianchetto - Yugoslav Panno
Player(s): Vukic, Atalik
In the key last round from the 2015 Belgrade Trophy Open GM Suat Atalik decides to employ the Kings Indian Defense against ultra-solid Serbian GM Milan Vukic, who always meets it with the g3 system. Since Black has a hard time generating counter-play in usual lines with e7-e5, Suat chooses the sharp variation where his knight appears to be stranded on a5. In order to get things going he looks at some new ideas from the games of Ding Liren and this game plan meets with a roaring success.
