Does anyone here play the Czech Benoni? 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 e5 !?
I was thinking about taking it up. I need a new defense to 1.d4. I have Chess Gladiator by Asa Hoffman, and he plays it a lot.
It seems like a very closed positional struggle, where the stronger player should win. (Stronger player at a closed maneuvering game, not nece ...[text shortened]... because I have played just about everything else but these two defenses.

I went through it fast. I will take a deeper look later. Black never got an ounce of counterplay on the queenside. That was quite a brutal beating. Who was black? Hoffman played Bg4 instead of Nbd7.

Originally posted by paulbuchmanfromficsHm,I thought I searched for players this way on the 'find player' thingy.But now it's not possible Has there been a change made to the site or am I going nuts?

Not sure how i missed this thread yesterday? The Czech Benoni has been my mainstay opening against 1.d4 for many years now. I almost always play the line as played by Larsen (...g6)in the game above - given with superb notes in my book ; )
It has very little charted theory on it, so many players on the white side almost all my openings, I will play them until I get bored or someone shows me the defects!
