QCC 2007 Futurity (8), 24.08.2007
White gets an overwhelming position but Black holds on. 1.d4 Nf6 2.g3 c5 3.d5 d6 4.Bg2 g6 5.c4 b5!? As Yermolinksy points out, Delayed Benkos usually don’t work out well for Black. 6.cxb5 a6 7.bxa6 Bxa6 8.Bd2! Bg7 9.Bc3

This nullifies one of Black’s main positional advantages in the Benko − the dark square pressure by the fianchettoed bishop. 9…0-0 10.Nf3 Qb6 11.0-0 Bc4 12.Na3 Qa6 [12…Bxd5 13.Bxf6; 12…Ba6 13.Nd2 Nbd7 14.Nac4 Qb7 15.e4+−] 13.Nxc4 Qxc4 14.Nd2 Qb5 15.e4 Nbd7 16.Re1 Nb6 17.Bf1 Qd7 18.b3 Rfc8 19.a4 Qa7 20.a5 Nbd7 21.Nc4 h5 22.f4 Qc7 23.Bh3 Qb7 24.Qc2
