Description / Grandmaster Repertoire 12 - The Modern Benoni

The Modern Benoni arises after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 e6. It leads to unbalanced structures and exciting play, so it has naturally been a favourite of ambitious attacking players such as Tal, Kasparov, Fischer and, more recently, Topalov, Ivanchuk, Gashimov and even Kramnik!

The Modern Benoni is a bold answer to 1.d4 and GM Marian Petrov shows it is possible to play this line confidently without memorizing extreme levels of theory. Black must certainly be well prepared, but the workload is less than most aggressive defences – this book supplies all Black needs to know.

Marian Petrov is a grandmaster and former Bulgarian Champion. He has great experience in the Modern Benoni and has used it to win many international events.
