  refutor: is ...c5 better here than ...e5 going for an improved benoni (e.g. avoiding the taimanov attack)?
Dec-02-05  suenteus po 147: <refutor> Do you know if there is an ECO code for this position after 6...c5?

  KingG: <suenteus po 147> I don't think there is a separate ECO code, but after something like 6...c5 7.d5 e6 8.exd5 cxd5 it goes into a Benoni, which has an ECO code like A70-A79.
May-18-06  Drifter: < <refutor> is ...c5 better here than ...e5 going for an improved benoni (e.g. avoiding the taimanov attack)? > with e5 black usually intends to play on the king-side and c5 intends play on the queenside.

The MCO says that alot of GMs distrust the benoni because of the pawn wedge white can gain.

but at club level its a good aggresive opening.I think its a matter of taste.
