The Benko Gambit is a great opening for those who like aggressive chess. Black sacrifices a pawn for active play on the queen¬side 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 Veselin Topalov, Vishy Anand and Garry Kasparov have played the Benko.

Sergey Kasparov has practiced the Benko Gambit himself for many years. He knows all the subtleties of Black’s and White’s plans in detail. In lively, personal and highly instructive prose he presents a complete repertoire, with many new concepts, for Black.

Kasparov helps the reader to get a firm grip on this opening. He does not present endless computer variations but concentrates on ideas and concepts. After studying The Dynamic Benko Gambit, amateurs as well as professionals will be much more dangerous attackers!

Grandmaster Sergey Kasparov (1968) was born in Baku, AzeRbaijan, and now lives in Belarus. He has won many tournaments throughout the world and is a regular contributor to the New In Chess Yearbooks.
