Nicolai Pedersen

The Benko Gambit (1.d4,Nf6; 2.c4,c5; 3.d5,b5!?) is undoubtedly one of Black's most combative responses to 1.d4. 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 circumspect approach. Either way, Black succeeds in unbalancing the position from a very early stage.

In this book, Nicolai Pedersen presents a concise and practical repertoire for Black in the Benko Gambit. Using 49 illustrative games he covers all of White's main options in both the gambit accepted and declined. He also examines various options White has of avoiding the Benko, such as 2.Nf3, and what to play in these situations. Studying the complete games and the author's comments in this book will allow you to understand both the strategy and tactical ideas behind the Benko Gambit and play it with confidence in your own games.
