Chess Tactics in The Benko Gambit – IM Robert Ris

The Benko Gambit (also known as the Volga Gambit) is a chess opening for Black against 1.d4. It occurs after the moves 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 b5

The opening got its name in honor of the Hungarian-American Grandmaster Pal Benko, who contributed a lot to the theoretical development of the gambit in the 1960s and 1970s.

In 1974, he published the book The Benko Gambit in which he provided many new ideas and suggestions for Black.

The Benko Gambit has stood the test of time and is still widely employed in the 21st century by Grandmasters and club players alike.

IM Robert Ris’ course on the essential tactics and strategic ideas in the Benko Gambit gives you a complete understanding of typical tactical and strategic patterns for both sides.

The Benko Gambit is a sound, refreshing alternative for all Black players who are tired to play the absolute main lines like the Slav Defense or the Grunfeld Defense against 1.d4. It’s a strategically and dynamically complex opening full of tactical possibilities.
