A completely original opening idea…

Sometimes a completely original opening idea comes along which is too good to miss. The King’s Indian Attack is a frequent visitor on the club player’s chessboard. Beyond, a few Grandmasters carry the banner, but they tend to use Nf3 and g3 when they want to keep the draw in hand or beat up a weaker opponent without taking too many risks. So we need something with Black. I thought I knew a lot about this opening, but my attention was recently drawn by GM Nigel Davies to an idea of the Finnish Grandmaster Heikki Westerinen which is odd and very effective.
