He definetly references and makes sure to analyse games covering a fair bit of the Avrukh stuff - its become rather topical after all!
(he blames Avrukh for the Fianchetto becoming theoretical all of a sudden Wink)

Oh, he also seems to think that the Qh4+ Taminov is maybe struggling fractionally, if nothing awful.

How is the analysis in the book with regards to Avrukh's repertoire choices against the Modern Benoni (Fianchetto)?


If you mean Watson's book compared to Avrukh, it is clear that there are some differences, since Avrukh has listed Watson's book in the bibliography.

In the main line (Fianchetto variation), he gives a move (Re1 instead of Be3) which seems to save White some time compared to Watson's. Since I haven't played either side yet, I can't tell how good a line this is, but to me it is more natural I think. As far as I can tell, Watson hasn't analysed this.

Maybe somebody else who has looked at this can give a better opinion?


I apologise--I should have clarified. I was referring to the Everyman Chess Development book by Palliser.

I am sorry, was there any conclusion on Watson's line in the flick-knife, with an early ...Qh4+?
