    Presented by IM David Vigorito
    Catalog Code: DVD0155CL

    The Modern Benoni is a very dynamic opening very popular at club level and is still unrefuted. The modern Benoni is a chess opening with the moves 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 e6.and is classified under the ECO codes A60–A79. After the initial moves, Black proceeds to capture on d5, creating a majority of black pawns on the queenside.

    Modern Themes in the Benoni - 2 DVDs - Chess Lecture - Volume 66
    Catalog Code: DVD0066CL

    The Modern Benoni was invented in 1927 by Frank Marshall at the New York Chess Tournament. Marshall played it twice, first for a draw against Capablanca, and again later losing to Aron Nimzowitch whom labeled the Modern Benoni an ''unfortunate extravagance'' in his annotations. In the 1950s interest in the system revived, as the King's Indian Defense gained in popularity among Soviet players and their investigations branched into related opening systems such as the Benoni. The imbalance inherent in the pawn structure of the Modern Benoni and the counter-chances this implies for Black appeals to aggressive players.

    The modern Benoni was first seen and played, even though sporadically, in the 1920's, thanks mostly to the Masters Hromadka and Marshall. However, unfortunately it did not gain the favour of the chess public until the period 1950/1960, when it was resuscitated by those players par excellence Tal and Fischer.
