I couldn't find it in any of my (recent) Benko books.

Thanks for the reply but I've found my reference for it.  In Too Hot To Handle: The King's Indian Defense on Chessable by FM Kamil Plichta he advocates this against the London.

I believe that Nicolai Pedersen recommended it in Play the Benko Gambit, but my memory might be incorrect (I no longer have the book).

Pedersen only mentions 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 c5 3.d5 b5.

Can anyone tell me where 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bf4 c5 3.d5 b5!? is recommended for Black.  My memory is so poor I can't remember even though I was recently looking at it.
