The trouble.... .....with a Benoni mini-tournament is that you'd have to play it as Black as well as White. ;)

Philaretus You see that as a problem? It's quite good fun as black - contrary to popular belief the Taimanov is not all that great. And that Modern Classical Variation is quite playable for black and one can even try to avoid it all together by using move order tricky.

Playing against the Benoni . . . with the white pieces is not on my list of pleasures, but I would love to give it a go. Alas, I'm full with my ration of games at this time and cannot add any more. Sorry.

Grunfeld ... No, you don't need to be a member to play, you just need to have completed 5 games.

Just click on Tournaments, and then at the top of the next screen under mini tournaments, click all active .. you'll see the title "modern benoni thematic' .. just go ahead and join.

correction you need to have won 5 games.
might be the same, but it's not for sure:)
