Benoni Taimanov 8…Nbd7 9.e5[A67]-TWIC 905

Benoni Taimanov-Key Kasparov Game
This key game put the Taimanov variation on the map.

Benoni Taimanov 8…Nbd7 9.e5
The 8..Nbd7 invites a massive attack but still has not been refuted. After 19...Rfe8(diagram) white is at a major branch. This is the starting point for a deep Benoni theory debate.


TWIC 905
GM Kuljasevic chose 20.Bf4 which is good enough for equality but in the game had to come back from a lost position. The game was played in rd9 of the Zagreb Open 2012.

Here is the feature game.
