Kindred’s Special: Is Black Safe Playing Qxb2 in the Benoni Setup When Meeting the London System?

1. d4  Nf6  2. Bf4  c5  3. d5  Qb6  4. Nc3  Qxb2  5. Bd2  Qb6  6. e4  d6  7. f4  As I had mentioned earlier, variations of giving up the b2 pawn to lure the Queen to waste time retreating after capturing it boosts the dynamics of the position which has become very unbalanced.  If you are a materiel hog, then you got to bite the bullet and be prepared to undergo a dynamic pressure by White. What makes this favorable for White is the half-open b-file, exposed Queen that retreated to b6 and can be attacked by the Rook and big jump in square count that equals a plus in developmental tactics.

Vaganian vs. Kupreichik continued from this position with 7. … g6  8. e5  dxe5  9. fxe5  Nfd7  10. Nf3  Bg7 11. Rb1 and Black must retreat the Queen.

11. … Qd8  12. e6!  This sharp tactical pawn strike into the enemy’s guts will retard the Queen-side development where White hopes to further tactical opportunities in all sectors.

12. …fxe6 13. Ng5!  This tactic keeps up the pressure and this position illustrates that simple pawn recaptures gives the defense time.  To illustrate this, supposing White recaptures immediately with 13. dxe6, then Black can manuever with 13. … Nb6  14. Bb5+ Nc6 15. Bxc6+ bxc6 and soon Black can O-O with a good game.  Why? Because he has safeguarded his King, has a pawn plus still, and active Bishop-pair.

13. … Nf6  14. Bb5+ Kf8  15. dxe6  a6  16. Be3!  Qa5  17. O-O  h6  Mudding the waters doesn’t seem to help.  The straightforward looking 17. … axb5  18. Rxb5  Qc7 19. Nd5 and the two-Knights tango carries with it total collapse of the Black defense.

18. Qd3  Kg8  19. Qxg6  Bxe6  20. Nxe6  Rh7  21. Rxf61!!  (1-0).  All roads lead to mate.

This game shows a colorful example of pawn power to initiate a discombobulation of opposing forces.

    Do you know how I avoid duplicate iCal alerts? (Apple support does not, so far…) I think b/c of iCloud calendar sharing among my husband and i, I’m getting two alerts for every event on the iMac and on the iPhone. all the things is up to date and i have a very new MacBook Pro and the new iPhone 4s.
