Beat the King's Indian and Benoni structures with the impenetrable pawn phalanx g2-f3-e4-d5. Encounter your opponent with sound and fresh ideas in this classical rebooted line of the Saemisch! The centre is stabilised with the move f3, and a possible expansion on the kingside is also prepared. Thus it is usually White who gets the attacking chances against the king. Since Benoni is structurally very similar to the King's Indian with ...c5, many plans and motifs can be transferred here. You can then test both your theoretical knowledge as well as look at typical ideas in model games in the numerous accompanying interactive videos.
