latest missing trend in benko gambit

5th e3 is very popular these days . 1.d4 nf6 2. c4 c5 3.d5 b5 4.ab5 a6 5.e3 e6 6.nc3 ed5 7. nd5 bb7 8.nf6 qf6 9.nf3 . This line is not covered in our course sir . please update it .

GENERAL OPINION
This line  was suggested in the modern chess database for white by Grigorov Grigor. And in the benko gambit course by Erwin Lami he said that this line is most critical as of now . he could not refute it . There are many ways we can get minus postions by playing normal moves. i think this move needs some deep prep because we dont get typical benko structure. personally i dont like the arising structures and because of the analysis given by Grigorov Grigor  he analyzed almost  all variations and i didnt like black arising postion .. i am very curious how we are gonna refute this line

I too would like more explanation in this line, as it's really popular anti-benko weapon, get this a lot online these days, seems like some coaches prepare the kids specifically this line against benko :D

After 5.e3, why not 5...g6 6.Nc3 Bg7 7.Nf3 0-0 8.a4 Bb7 with idea of ...d6 and ...Nbd7?

after 5...g6 6.nc3 bg7 7. e4 and a4 bc4 ne2 if black ever capture on b5 white captures with the bishop is slightly better for white and about your  line there is a good move after nbd7    h3  if i remember correctly which gives white a good position.  if 5 g6 is better than e6 it would be in the course .
thanks for the reply

Avetik is going to re-record the Benko gambit since it was one of the first courses and he wants to add several things. In the meanwhile I asked him to take a look at the line and tell you a general plan. Do not worry. Kushal are you a pro-member? These questions it is better to post them in the pro member section normally.

I played 2 days ago a line from this same position in an Online Torunament of the Japanese Chess Federation. I think that the resulting position was very promissing for Black, the game has lots of mistakes and places where we can begin to improve, but after 3 or 4 moves since 9.Nf3 I believe that Black position was good. I checked the game and I know that I will need to move the knight faster in the future and I do not need to hurry in centralizing the rooks. See the game here, it was pretty wild...
