Thanks for this Reply sup Dereque…was looking at 4.dxe looks ok for white as 4. …dxe leads to queen exchange and bad for black. So i saw after 4.dxe? …Qe7! as now any exchange of f or d pawns just helps blacks development. Do you agree? Ive been using your vids as a reference guide for years…your presentation & explanations motivate me! Thanks man. Reply what's ur elo rating ? Reply your explanation was very nice indeed! thanks for this because i finally had an idea on how to play benoni. Reply Very nice intro and preliminary discussion. You've made me fall in love with this opening. Cheers, Dereque! Reply Do you have a Benko Gambit video tucked away somewhere? Looking at other channels the modern benoni has fallen out of favor (though they failed to mention why). Reply Thank you Dereque. Your video's are the only one's that I have been able to follow and start to understand the concepts involved behind the various possible moves in the game. Reply One of the clearest explanations of the key plans in the Benoni that I've seen. You have a gift for reducing openings to their essential ideas. I especially appreciate that you highlight the variations that don't work in a way that the average club player can understand. Kudos. Reply Super, but it just ended in the best moment 😀 Reply Hi thanks for the vids they are really good, does white somtimes play D6 bfore developing his knight. If so what is blacks best response to this? Reply can the old Benoni (direct c5) be of interest as beginner's opening? Reply This looks so uncomfortable to play for black! Reply thank you so much mr dereck i follow you from morocco 🙋 Reply I automatically hit like in all your videos. Then I watch them. Because I know they are awesome before I see them and it helps me track which ones I've seen already. 🙂 Reply Well done, sir, again Reply Why the hell do I play the Benoni? Reply Has Black ever tried a pre-emptive 6…a6 to keep that bishop check out? Reply Excellent analysis of this opening and options. Thank you! Reply Love to The legendary Derq Kelley for his Legendary video on my favourite opening. Reply thanx can I use it against London system?? Reply plz say which will be effective opening against Lindon system Reply What he never mentioned is that exactly the Taimanov Attack (7.f4) is the reason why Black usually reaches the Modern Benoni with different move order and plays 2.e6 first and only plays c5 after White placed a Knight on f3.Well, he basically presented perfectly why is Black doing that… Reply Good Job Kelly. Your lectures helped me a lot in learning opening repertoire. You made opening principles very interesting..Thanks a lot. Reply It’s openings like this that made me fall in love with chess. 😁!!,I thought it nerdy and dull until I saw Tal and Steinitz games!..does anyone know where the Benoni name comes from?…why it’s called that? Reply frindle Reply One word: Excellent!! Reply Is this a good alternative to Sicilian defence when d4 is white first move? Reply . Reply Please also cover the Czech Benoni, Benoni with 3…g6 and the Hromadka System and make some Endgame and Middlegame videos also. I have subscribed to your channel.

I love the way we went through whites attack and how black intends to follow up, as well as how white will respond to this and how black can proceed from there. Reply Nice Reply son of sorrow Reply Ysddwsdasx1eqesaseadadsdqwsqaddassadewsdadsaseeddsaddasasasdxxs5 Reply I am a beginner of chess, if yours ides is/was to teach a beginner like me, please include the coordinate of the chess board A1, B2 etc etc. Most of time were to pause and search where were what! If I am a master like you, then I do not need to watch your video. You did kill two birds with one video – the beginners and the masters. Reply Kampung ku tu Reply Excellent videos Reply This was really helpful! I'm a new player (well I've been playing for 20 years, but now I'm actually trying to get good at it instead of just pushing pieces around) and I think I'll consider adding this to my opening repertoire!
