Play the Benko Gambit, Paperback / softback Book

Play the Benko Gambit Paperback / softback


The Benko Gambit is undoubtedly one of Black's most exciting openings.

In return for a pawn investment Black gains long-term pressure, which is so strong it often lasts into the endgame!

White must decide whether to grab the pawn and hold on, or to choose a more aggressive approach.

Either way, Black succeeds in unbalancing the position from a very early stage. In this book, Nicolai V. Pedersen presents a practical repertoire for Black within the Benko Gambit.

He also covers various options White has of avoiding the Benko, and how to deal with these situations.
