The Benko Gambit is an aggressive and tactical reply to 1.d4. It will help you get an aggressive position, full of tactical possibilities. This is the best way to guarantee the victory!
Usually the d4 - players would like to have a stable situation in the center and hopping for a maneuvre game. With Benko gambit you can destroy their plans and ideas; take them out of their comfort zone...
Benko is not similar to other gambits with unclear compensation, but a positional robust opening system that survived thought centuries. The main idea of this system is to give up a pawn on queenside and then press White's weak pawns with rooks and powerful fianchetto g7 bishop. In many cases White lost the game by a tactical blow; something you can do in the future.
Why I created the lessons?
Benko gambit is a base in order to understand more complex openings like Benoni and King's Indian Defense. It should be your first step before learning more advanced openings.
It has a lot of positional ideas that will help you improve your level to intermediate (more than 1500 ELO) or strong player (more than 1800 ELO). Black's pieces has very typical and characteristic positions. The maneuvers are standard and for that reason you'll remember them easily.
It is a system that helped me to get 1900 FIDE ELO rating and perform my best win against a 2300 ELO player; with black pieces! I know by hard all the ideas and lines because I use it for years. Thus, you can take advantage of my vast experience to create a powerful opening repertoire against 1.d4. You'll never fear this first move again.
