Nov-14-07  hahaha123: what if 7. d6? that looks killer
Nov-14-07  parisattack: Probably too early. Black can get play around the pawn while White is undeveloped. But 7. ...Re8 looks weak. No one beat up on the Benoni like Gligo did!
Nov-14-07  Shams: <hahaha123> it's certainly consequential; if white wants to play for a squeeze than d5-d6 is a respectable option. black will suffer cramp for many moves. but he can attack the pawn with queen, king knight and maybe king bishop; if white supports the d-pawn with e4-e5 then black hits out with ...f6. if black does free himself, his more compact structure could earn him a promising endgame.

my $.02

Nov-14-07  parisattack: I looked for it in Gligo's book - I Play Against the Pieces. The game is there but no note to a possible 7. d6. No note in Leach's Gligo book, either. I think White is too undeveloped to play it so early...
Nov-14-07  RookFile: 7. d6 Nc6 is fine for black.
