The database loads the games overview. A double click loads a game. They can be sorted according to frequency by means of the tab Players. Like that it is possible to take a closer look at games played by Benoni experts such as Levan Pantsulaia (118 games). Nick de Firmian (104) and Mihail Suba (99) are other specialists in this opening and it is worth your while to study their games. Of course, we should not forget Vugar Gashimov (81) who passed away all too soon and who was in recent years the only proponent of the Benoni among the world elite. And very recently Pavel Ponkratov (57) is perhaps the player we should be taking a look at.
The games can be played through or investigated further with an engine or a powerbook.
