Benoni Defense (Computer4-Impossible) – Standard chess #35

I played a standard chess game as white with time controls set at 15 minutes with a 5 second increment against Computer4-Impossible. The opening played was the Benoni Defense. The computer is far more brave than any human would be in this game, that’s for sure! 😀 Who gives up their key dark-square defender on the kingside in order to go pawn hunting? Would black’s greedy middlegame decision be punished, or would the often slippery computer get away yet again?

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who learned how to play from my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
