The Dynamic Benko Gambit
An Attacking Repertoire for Black
by Sergey Kasparov
The Benko Gambit is a great opening for those who like aggressive chess. Black sacrifices a pawn for active play on the queenside and his initiative often continues into the endgame. That’s why the opening is very popular among club players, but also World Champions such as Vishy Anand and Garry Kasparov have played the Benko.
