Perky Old Mod Benkoni
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Mostly A's & B's but lots of mutts. Not one of my better files, but it still might be of some use.

In the Modern Benoni Black waits to play ..c5 until after White has played Nf3. This then avoids the Taimanov Attack. Or basically any White line that allows him to play a quick f4.

Thank you jojomateo.
