[Event "Copenhagen Politiken cup"]
[Site ""]
[Date "2007.??.??"]
[Round "9"]
[White "Krasenkow, Michal"]
[Black "De Firmian, Nick E."]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
[WhiteElo "2660"]
[BlackElo "2540"]
[NIC "BI 3.4"]
[ECO "E10"]
[PlyCount "71"]

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 c5 4. d5 exd5 5. cxd5 d6 6. e4 a6 7. h3 Nbd7

now White has to protect the e-pawn and Black gets in ...b5:

8. Bd3 b5 9.O-O Be7 10. a4 Rb8 11. axb5 axb5 12. b3 O-O 13. Qe2 Re8 14. Be3 Bf8 15. Nbd2 b4 16.Ra7 Nb6 17. Rfa1 h6 18. Qd1 Re7 19. Rxe7 Qxe7 20. Qc2 Nfd7 21. Nc4 Nxc4 22. Bxc4 Nb6 23. Bd3 Qf6 24. Qd1 Ra8 25. Rxa8 Nxa8 26. Nd2 Nb6 27. Qb1 g5 28. Nc4 Nxc4 29.Bxc4 Bg7 30. Qa2 Qa1  31. Qxa1 Bxa1 32. f4 f6 33. Bb5 Kf7 34. Kf2 Kg6 35. f5  Kf7 36. g4 1/2-1/2

Thanks! That's interesting. But in my database White still has a great score with ...a6 h3
I never looked at the Benoni Positions exactly but I think White plays Bd3  and waits with a4 till he can traspose with it to a good version of the ModerMainLine-Benoni. Because I'm not experienced with the Benoni positions I can't say anythink concrete. Is there someone more experienced who might help?

I think Black should answer this interesting idea with ...a6. Now I dont see how White can hinder Black's both main planes - either play ...Bg4 or ...b5 - a4 is not possible due to ...Ne4!

Benoni without Nc3!?

Hey!
I've just seen an idea for White to fight against the Benoni. White played it without Nc3 (It was an amateur game- nothing special). I think the idea is quite interesting. Concrete:
e.g. 1. d4...Nf6 2. c4...e6 3. Nf3...c5 4. d5...exd5 5. cxd5...d6 6.e4!?
with the simple idea that Black can't take e4 because of Qa4+.
I think White tries to put his Nb1 via d2 on c4. In the Mega08 White's score is overwhelming. Are there any sources to this idea? (I'm new here...)
It would be a nice idea if White wants to play the QI instead of the Nimzo but doesn't like the "normal" Benoni stuff with a quick Nf3.
What's your opinion about it? Can White fight for an objectivly advantage with it?
And if not: Why?
