This is a placeholder for the Snake Benoni (Modern Benoni Part 3).
Analysis and comments go here.
I think I'm going to try this against a CM I play this thursday, I actually played him 2 weeks ago in a more center-style benoni that was really interesting. I ended up losing but was dead even at least in the late 20's move wise so that opening ended up a success. I posted the game in his blog page for the central strategy http://www.chess.com/blog/Nezhmet/modern-benoni-part-2
From my experience playing this CM and seeing a few of his other games, this is what I expect to see move order wise in the snake variation.
And white won in view of 23. Kxf7 Ng5+
Do you mean black?
Can you play the Snake Benoni against other
variations as well? I tried it out in an OTB tournament, and here are the results of the opening:
Hi to all,
Could you please tell me where I can find _study material_ to the Snake Benoni after 3.Nf3? I'd like to complement my usual 3.Nc3 Bb4 Nimzo-Indian with this one, as a surprise weapon. My usual opponents are FIDE 2200~2300.Please help.
It's a great way of adding knowledge to watch chess vid like this...
"King in a chimney". I'm gonna use that one.
I am confused....looking for the written followup talked about at the video's end...am I just too late getting here?
this is very interesting video :)
Great video. I'm going to add this to my repertoire against the move 3. Nf3.

Why I Blog!
The chief motivation for this site is to present interesting games that for the most part are not yet part of electronic databases. In addition, there is entertaining (semi-recent) history and the blog format is ideal so readers can chip in and flesh out the memories. The best thing about semi-recent history is that most of the characters are still alive!
The site is divided, generally speaking, into decades starting from the 1970s and going into the 2000s. To kick it off, I simply started annotating “undiscovered” games in June 2007 along with whatever memories I could muster.
