The aim in this book is to show that the Delayed Benoni is equally as attractive as its cousin, the Modern Benoni.
The advantage of “our” Benoni is based on a waiting approach. Black would like to choose a perfect moment to play …e6xd5, waiting for White to adopt some piece setup that turns out to be inconvenient for him after this exchange. At the same time, we would like to avoid some dangerous or deeply explored variations like the Flick-Knife (a.k.a Taimanov) or systems where White can place his bishop on the optimal f4-square.
A lot of variations in this book can also be useful for King’s Indian players, as a main or alternative way to play.
The Delayed Benoni is a kind of mystery for White also, since it has not been covered deeply enough in chess publications. So this work could be useful for White players, too.
