Modern Defense Move Order to Benko
Any Idea how I could get the Benko Gambit, or a form of the benko gambit through a modern defense move order?
Thanks!

Interesting Modern Defense move order/trap
I just played a blitz game and ran into what I can only describe as a strategic trap.  Here's the PGN:

Any thoughts on White's best here after 3...Nc6?  I'd never seen the move before; I guess 5.d5! must be the way to go.  Black played a surprising 10...Bxd4! and was already at least equal.
