In this modern era, Black players tend to prefer solid, computer- approved open- ings. I wanted

therefore to present a completely new approach for Black. The Benko Gambit has been an unpopular

choice since the computer isn’t too happy to lose a pawn unless absolutely necessary.


When he started playing the Benko 10 years ago, it was a very good choice for open tournaments and

weaker opponents, since it leads to an active game for Black. In time, he started using it against strong

players as well, and came to realise that the opening was entirely applicable at even top levels. There is a

secret danger for White: so long as White is up a pawn, the computer claims an advantage, but in

practice it is very difficult for humans to make use of this theoretical advantage.
