Nakamura loses to 2592 Benjamin bok

Oct 6, 2016, 4:40 AM |

Nakamura lost against young Dutchman Benjamin Bok in a very double edged Benoni where he was always a bit behind in development. It is a game typical of the variation: White takes up more space but has to waste a few extra pawn moves, and move a knight twice early on. As long as White is given a bit more time then the space advantage and the typical weaknesses of the Benoni structure will give him a real edge. However, Black has a lot of early piece activity to compensate. This is a incredibly complex game well worth playing through and studying.
