The Gambit Guide to the Benko Gambit
The Benko Gambit has enormous appeal to those who like to take the initiative with the black pieces. Black boldly sacrifices a pawn in the opening, and in return gets a secure position, and attractive prospects both in the short term and in the long term.
This book provides complete and even-handed coverage of this popular gambit, using the unique GAMBIT `Quick Summaries` system, introducing the main themes and where appropriate suggesting a coherent repertoire of reliable lines.
