Modern Repertoire against the Benoni
We are happy to announce the beginning of a new series of databases - practical opening solutions. Besides the heavy theoretical surveys, Modern Chess will diversify the opening materials by providing easy-to-learn complete solutions. Since such databases will be a bit shorter, the preparation for tournament and club players will be a lot easier. In this series, you will be offered fresh and less explored opening systems that are entirely correct and reliable.
In the current database, GM Boris Avrukh provides a complete solution against the Modern Benoni.
The starting position of the survey arises after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 e6 4.Nc3 exd5 5.cxd5 d6 6.e4 g6 7.h3 Bg7 8.Nf3 0-0 9.Be3
In the introduction to this survey, GM Avrukh states:
Inspired by the recent game Vidit vs Adhiban from World Cup 2021 I decided to check this new idea and to be honest, I was pleasantly surprised with what I discovered. I am excited to present my work in this variation.
Indeed, when we go through the analysis of Avrukh, it's not clear how Black can fight for theoretical equality.
The database consists of 3 theoretical chapters and Memory Booster.
Below, you shall take a look at how the author presents the database himself.
