We can look at this on FICS.  I've been playing and studying the line myself recently as Black.  Right now I'm going into a Modern Benoni while experimenting with it in blitz but I also studied several of the KID lines.  I still have to look at the exd5 line.

Thanks guys,

I have ordered the book.  Now, I just need to find companion volume to explain the theory of the Modern Benoni with h3 as laid out in Grivas' book Smiley

And why not the book by Grivas?

 Also, does he address the currently popular 6th move deviations from e5 such as Na6, Nbd7 or c6?  I'm a bit lost as to what plans to aim for in these lines.


6...Na6 is discussed, not too deply, on pages 40-41
6...Nbd7 often transposes to 6...e5, ...Na6-c5

I'm curious if Markos' book deals with transposition to the Modern Benoni after  1. d4 Nf6   2. c4 g6   3. Nc3 Bg7   4. e4 d6   5. Nf3 O-O   6. h3 c5?

6...c5 is in fact chapter 1 of the book. He covers the lines where white does not transpose to the Modern Main Line of the Modern Benoni by playing exd5 instead of cxd5 in reply to ...e6 followed by ...exd5)

Unless I missed something there's no discussion on these, presumably with the idea that it will all transpose to 6...e5 lines later (and that Nbd7 results in the knight being on c5 sooner or later).

I have Grivas' book "beating the fianchetto defenses".  For a player at my level, there just aren't enough verbal explanations to understand the motivation behind his theory.  In particular, he gives plenty of theory for 5th move deviations, but does not address how the same deviations can be played on move 6.  It seems that if white will play those variants with h3 included, then an efficient repertoire choice after all 5th move deviations should be 6.h3.
