A Benoni nuance in the Watson white rep book
I know a repertoaire book can`t cover everything, and especially not a book in one volume

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...

Benoni Modern Main Line Move Order
I have Watson's book and was curious about what answer anyone has to someone who plays h3 on move 6 or 7 as to avoid Bg4 and answer an early a6 with a4. Is there any way to refute this ambit...

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...

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...
