I think Gurgenidze lines with g6 is better ways to play for a win vs weaker opponents.
I know a lot of strong players used to play g6 on the tournament circuit a number of years ago with great success. However if White plays ed cd; Bf4 then it often transposed into a line that the same strong players used to avoid the KID!
