Unortodox Benoni

Nov 8, 2016, 5:31 PM |

A long streak of bad games ended tonight. And it was again a match against the old nemesis Anders Larsson wich have been the white whale to beat. His game is solid and doesnt give away any wild play at all...or at least untill tonight then! So Benoni again and I had looked some in theory but decided to think outside of the box...again! 1.d4,Nf6 2.Nf3,c5 3.d5,d6 4.e4,e5 5.dxe6?!,fxe6(maybe Bxf6 is moore solid). And where to go now? 

Keyword is active play and I started by opening lines 6.e4,d5(didnt like this at first) 7.exd5,exd5 8.Bf4(tempo at least),a6 9.Bd3,Be7 Felt as blacks careful play might give me some opportunities on his kingside so here we go 10.Ng5,Nc6? (o-o works better) 

Now this is it I thought but what shall I do?? He is inviting a strike at h7 and I was to hotheaded to analyse position clearly before moving a piece!!!
