Perunovic is writing a book on the Benko
According to the Thinkers Publishing website, Perunovic's The Hyper Modernized Benko Gambit will be appearing in December. I look very forward to this, as I assume other Benko aficionados will.

Benko via 1...Nf6 or 1...c5?
I don't know if this question has already been asked (by myself?; in Benko topic or Weird Benonis) but I was wondering if I can reach the Benko as much or as easily via 1...c5? I don't mind the Schmid...

Perunovic variation/ Modern Benko
I hope there is someone that can compare the statistics I get from TWIC with Megabase 2016 in the Perunovic/ Modern Benko variation. The moves usually played is this:
[pgn][Event "Qatar M...|/pgn]
Now, in my TWIC it says:
1-0     = 16  = 46%
Draw  = 34
0-1     = 21   = 54%
71 games in total when I filter the players by 2200.
If I filter the player at 2500 its 8 games and 53/47 in whites favour. Quite normal. 
So its the Modern Benko (Flear) or the Perunovic variation here to stay according to the Megabase 2016, or what? I d hope so

Benko question against 1.d4 2.Nf3
So is there still a possibility to transpose into a benko after
1.d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 g6 3. c4 c5 4.d5 b5
or why is it said benko wouldn't be possible after 2.Nf3?

Any opinions on "The Benko Gambit: Move by Move"?
I have almost all books about the Benko and wonder if this one is a good addition, or more suited for starters with the Benko.

Chance of Benko via 1.d4 Nf6 compared to 1.d4 c5?
Does one have more chance of reaching a Benko via 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 b5 or via 1.d4 c5 2.d5 Nf6 3.c4 b5 (at amateur-level, ca. 1650-1950)?
