  SwitchingQuylthulg: Yep, very much agreed. Fine's own comments of this game, in The Middlegame in Chess, always gives me a smile of delight. He gives 3...c5 a question mark, then the next comment is after move 18: "White obviously has an overwhelming position", which the reader should apparently take as the logical outcome of Black's weak 3...c5. What follows is a neat conversion of his edge. Could it really be that 3...c5 loses by force...?
Jun-26-09  WhiteRook48: well after 5...d6 it looks like the Benoni
Jul-28-09  WhiteRook48: so play 6 e4

  An Englishman: Good Evening: How opening theory has grown. Of course 6...Bg7 is the modern Benoni, and perfectly playable, as Tal demonstrated on quite a few occasions. Black's 6th and 7th moves are the real mistakes.
