    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.

    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.
