Benoni 7.Bf4 [A61]
22nd North American Open Las Vegas USA (7.4), 29.12.2012

Position 1
White has a stable endgame edge to work with. Black’s pawn structure is weak and the passed a-pawn is a key factor. How should black defend?

  • 25…d5 liquidating pawns
  • 25…Ra8 activating the rook
  • 25…Nc6 activating the knight
  • -Something else

25.Nc4
