    Book Description

    The Benko Gambit is a great opening for those who like active play. Black sacrifices a pawn in order to activate his pieces on the queenside, and generally gains enduring pressure. It has been played by recent world champions like Veselin Topalov, Vishy Anand and Garry Kasparov, and is a popular choice with amateurs all over the world. Grandmaster Sergey Kasparov, who has extensive experience with the Benko, presents a complete repertoire for Black, with many new ideas and improvements on existing theory. This book is accessible for the average club player but stronger players, too, will learn many things they didn’t know.
