The Master Game: Browne – Nunn

This episode features the young John Nunn playing his (then) favorite Modern Benoni. One interesting side note is that a couple of years earlier as a spotty teenager I had played the 7.f4 line against Nunn’s Benoni in what was a theoretically important game. In retrospect I’m just amazed that I did this, but there again I also played the King’s Gambit around that time.

Here’s the second part which features further complications and then an unexpected agreement to a draw when Browne stood better but had very little time left.

There aren’t many Modern Benoni players around these days, even when White has put his knight on f3. So it’s probably something that’s worth rehabilitating as not many White players will have much recent experience against it.
