Benoni Defense

The Benoni Defense is a group of chess openings generally characterized by these opening moves; 1. d4 - c5 2. d5. Although Black's c5 and White's d5 are delayed most of the time.The practical opening sequence for the Benoni is
1. d4 - Nf6
2. c4 - c5
3. d5 -....
This means that black could sacrifice a pawn by 3. b5. making the Benko Gambit.If black does not elect this line then 3. e6 is the most common move (other than 3. g6 and 3. d6) ;)
try it out.. :clap: this opening may improve your game :dance:

Re: Benoni Defense

The Benoni Defense is a very aggressive line that black can play to counter the very common open by white d4. While many defenses against the queen pawn opening are closed and drawish, the Benoni Defense gives black many opportunities to not only equalize the position, but also to gain an advantage and play for the win.
