The opening name after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5.  It was first analyzed by Aaron Reinganum in 1825, who called it Ben-Oni (child of my tears, in Hebrew).  His book was Ben-Oni oder die Vertheidigungen die Gambitzüge im Schach.


Not to be confused with the Old Benoni 1.d4 c5.

    One of the best d4 nf6 openings ever....or at least this is my opinion and black has a great game with the fianchettoed bishop on g7 and sometimes can go to the very hard for white,many times,benko gambit with lots of attacking possibilities while even following some basic themes
