Modern Benoni with Nf3 - early e4
I've now analysed for some time the following line against the modern Benoni:
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 c5 4.d5 exd5 5.cxd5 d6 6.e4!?
The idea, in short, is to reach the MML, without a...

Any thoughts on this move? I have tested this four tournament games. The first three were very successful (3-0). But in ...

Modern Benoni with Bf4
This line is recommended by Richard Palliser in "Play 1.d4!" and is very difficult to face. To see how he fares when faced with his own recommendations, here is a recent game with Richard playing Bla...

Anti-Taimanov move orders in the Benoni
I've never played the Benoni before, so please forgive my ignorance if these questions are silly ones, but in the course of investigating what setups I might be able to play as Black after the moves 1...

Anti-Benoni Question. Opinions/Advice?
I usually play the Nimzo-Indian with the Black pieces, and prefer Benoni to Queen's Indian when White plays 3.Nf3 (I also don't trust Black's prospects against the Taimanov/Flick-knife Benoni lines). ...

According to IM Richard Palliser, he recommends Bf4 in his book, Play d4!. But, I'm concerned about Nh5/f5 ideas for black that seems to put a damper on the Bf4 line. I recently came up with this: d4 ...

A Benoni line in trouble?
1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 c5 4. d5 exd5 5. cxd5 d6 6. e4 g6 7. Nf3 a6 has become a popular line in the Benoni (7...a6 is the main repertoire recommendation in Watson's book).

In one of the ChessPub Guides (uploaded 12/12/2004 in the Nimzo/Benoni Section), John Emms says to meet 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 c5 3.e3 he is "going to look at a Kingside fianchetto" 3...g6.
I can't find ...

Why play exd5 in the Benoni?
I notice that the Benoni move order is typically:
1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 c5 4. d5 exd5 5. cxd5 d6 6. Nc3 g6 7. e4
I understand that this is to prevent the Taimanov variation with f4, but...
