This book outlines two fundamentally different ways for White to attack the Modern Benoni Defense. The author shows that one of these, Taimanov's 7 f4 and 8 Bb5+, may even be an outright refutation of the Modern Benoni, especially with the follow-up 8...Nfd7 9 a4!. The other system outlined, the Knight's Tour, may be used not only versus the traditional 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 c5, but also against other move orders which are appearing ever more frequently on the chess scene, such as 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nf3 c5 and 1 d4 Nf6 2 Nf3 e6 3 c4 c5.

The idea for this book began with two articles I wrote for Players Chess News. Since those articles first appeared, a great deal of new material has come in on Taimanov's attacking system (Part I of the book before you). Fresh ideas for both sides have caused considerable revision on the theoretical "structure" of this system, but without, I think, any overall reassessment of its worth. To a lesser extent, I have also amended my analysis on the Knight's Tour variation, particularly as a response to new games in the 9 Bg5 h6 and 9 Bg5 Qe7 lines. The nuts-and-bolts work of moulding a mass of examples into a working system accounts for various sections on move orders and irregular deviations. The net results, I hope, is to present two complete systems of play versus the Modern Benoni, with all the necessary supplementary material.

Why a repertoire book? The recent proliferation of chess information has, unfortunately, made it impossible to cover a major opening in encyclopedic fashion, i.e. by covering all significant options. On the other hand, specialty books on individual variations can only give the practical player a small part of the repertoire he is presumably trying to build for tournament and club play. As a chess researcher, I am fond of and extensively use such specialty works. The average student of the game, however, has neither the financial resources for a complete set of such books, nor the time to shift through and make full use of them.

The repertoire concept provides an attractive solution to this problem. Essentially, the author offers a system to the reader, which he can then use versus a certain opening set of moves. Versus the Najdorf Sicilian, for example, a "complete" treatment of 6 Bg5 might require some 600 pages. But a specific set of plans for White versus all responses to 6 Bg5 could take as few as e.g. 40 pages.

Of course this format presents certain problems. The author may be offering some lines which are incompatible with the reader's style or, worse, lines which later prove to be simply unsound. The book before you tries to compromise in this regard, by offering two repertoires, fundamentally different in nature. Both of these systems are essentially sound, with one (Taimanov's) emphasizing immediate attack and the other (the Knight's Tour) using positional pressure in the search for advantage. I have also tried to "protect" the prospective user of these systems by pointing out alternatives at key junctures throughout both repertoires. In the Taimanov's especially, where the subvariations are more subject to violence and hence to radical revaluation. White is given lengthy advice on how to play both 9 Bd3 and 9 a4, a choice on the first independent move he makes. In the Knight's Tour, one will find a variety of options on many moves after 9 Bg5.

Both systems attempt to take advantage of a particular weakness of the Modern Benoni structure. For a characterization of the general problems involved, see Chapters 2 and 10. But the heart of the book, as always, resides in the examples. From these, one should be able to master the underlying concepts and, therefore, make these systems one's own.
