30/April/2023 – Fantastic game by GM Joel Lautier. This opening is different from the Modern Benoni because black’s dark bishop will go to d6-c7-a5 which is not consistent with the theory of Modern Benoni. Moreover, if you do not have knowledge about this set up it is not easy to deal with the “Snake Benoni”. The French GM showed his way of dealing with this opening and was very successful in taming it.
The 2nd featured game: IM Daniel Barria Zuniga played a vicious game. Black was not able to counter white’s attack. This is a type of play on how to engage the tricky black opening to not allow to develop pieces. Fantastic play, but have a hot & delicious coffee first.
