The dynamic Modern Benoni Defence has undergone something of a revival over the past five or six years. It offers Black a fighting game right from the opening and is ideal for counter-attacking players who like to strive for the initiative right from the opening moves, such as the young Bulgarian star Veselin Topalov. This book considers every important variation, with particular emphasis on those which the reader is likely to encounter in his or her own games.
