1. d4 c5 2.d5 is my prefered line.
if this is what you like, play d4 Nf6 and meet c4 with c5. or play 2. ... e6 and only go into the benoni after Nf3 like IM pfren (this is the good way to do it, but you have to learn more theory).
U can play Na6 and take the pawn with a knight.
OK, I've decided to stick with 1.d4 1...d5 for OTB and stick with 1.d4 1...c5 for blitz only. Thanks for your help though.
4...b6 followed by 5...d5 looks fine.
2.dxc5 is a bad reason to drop the Benoni.
Comment 1: True...
Comment 2: Well, because of the 3.Nd2 line!
This is nothing to worry about. You grab a big share of the center in exchange for the bishop pair.
Besides, what if they try 3.Nc3 Bxc5 4.Ne4 LOL
Play 4...Nf6 and if 5.Nxc5 then Qa5+ is pretty good for black
white is better with the 2 bishops and the queenside majority.
What about 4. Dd8-h4 5.Hd6 Kf8 6. g3 Db4 7.c3 Db6 ??
what is d and what is h?
Very educational games.
That what i'm trying to avoid!!!
How is that good???
Thank you for spamming and making useless comments.
The easiest way would be the simple 3. ...Nf6. If 4. Nb3 a5 5. a4 Na6 seems very pleasant for black. Simple Chess!
Beware! Low stats does not equal lack of ability!
