"Play the Benko Gambit" by Pedersen and "Attack With Black" by .org/web/ /olhon.info Play the Benko Gambit (Everyman Chess Series) [Nicolai Pederson] on As a note, go to Everyman Chess website to view pdf files on most books they sell. Mr. Pedersen mixes instructive prose together with variations quite well, and he also mixes all the latest theoretical nuances with some original analysis of his.

Pedersen Everyman Chess is divided into three sections The first two sections have three chapters each and the last only two chapters. The introduction notes themes of play for Black and White The organization and reading is very clear and on point The later opening books from this publisher have been a wonderful read Play the London System, A ferocious opening repetiore for White, Alekhine Alert, etc.

Nicolai Pedersen has covered all you need to play this gambit successfully and the Anti-Benko section is a worthwhile addition. Having said that, another recent book on this opening I purchased the newer book to supplement the copy from QC and hope to use them both in the future.

For any new buyers out there, EITHER edition will help you as far as content, depth and guidelines go so old, new or maybe even both copies will do! The book is a good work for Everyman and worth the price BUY IT! Read this book through and through and learned a great deal. I can credit 2 tournament wins to this book alone.

This book is a superb overview of the Benko Gambit. However, for my liking, it does not cover enough alterntative lines and lacks comprehensive analysis of the illustrative games. The introduction gives a brief outline of thematic opening ideas for white and black.

What is outstanding about this book is it's coverage of Benko Gambit declined lines.

Books by Steffen Pedersen

It gives a detailed covereage of 5. It also gives a detailed coverage of two "anit Benko lines": Nf3 and 1. Bg5 Ne4. This book will be well complimented by the older The Benko Gambit. While it does not cover as many lines as Play the Benko Gambit, the introduction is a comprehensive 23 page disertation on the Benko Gambit pawn structure featuring 8 illustrative games and other part games.

We can credit his victory, however, to his fighting abilities rather than to his opening novelty. The fianchetto of the White King Bishop is a frequent choice. By developing his Bishop in this way he of course abandons the diagonal KB 1 -QR6 to his opponent's Queen Bishop, but he is able to castle without difficulty. White's KB, on the other hand , frequently plays only a m inor passive role or eventually is forced to return to KB 1 to be exchanged for Black's QB.

QN-Q2 10 Of the many attempts to improve White's chances, one of the most frequently adopted is the development of the King Kn ight to R3. The idea is good insofar as the Knight does not interfere with the King B ishop's protection of the QP and, in fact, may even help in this respect by going to KB4.

Nevertheless, the effectiveness of Black's Queenside play is in no way hindered by White's N-R3 and the Knight may find itself too far away for too long from the main scene of battle, as has been shown by practical experience. The immediate 1 1 N?! After 1 1. This is another drawback to the development of the Knight to KR3.

Now White decides to relocate his Knight via KN5, but his position cannot survive the wasting of so many tempi. The Bishop threatens to find new prospects on KB4.

The point is that if White tries to prevent this by P-K4,. Another try was seen in Eroeybek-Schoenberg, Skopje Olympiad 1 A similar attempt was made in Evans-DeFotis. B-KN2 10 B-N2. An example of this idea is Benko-Berry in the Appendix. The endgame is quite interesting 3 1 B-R3 R-R7! Black made excellent use of his chances. White still has the slightly better chances.

More games are needed to examine this idea. After 9. This does not work out too well. Another example was L. N-K 1 If Wijk aan Zee 1 97 3. White has a little the better of it.

QN-Q2 instead of 9. This is surely not the kind of position Black hopes to obtain when he plays the Benko Gambit! If Black tries to avoid the main variation for some reason.

QN-Q2 10 Q-R4. Black left his QP unmoved for too long. For instance. Black's pun ishment should serve as a lesson: After a normal King's Indian beginning: Even when Black has the opportunity to play the gambit. Or perhaps White may u nwittingly allow the loss of a tempo whereupon the Black pawn sacrifice may be an excellent choice either for counterattacking possibilities or to free Black's position and avoid a possibly long defense.

N-B3 8 P-QR4!? Goteborg 1 97 1: F1 It is the King's Indian Defense which yields the greatest number of transposition opportunities. There are times.

A violent attempt at refutation was a counter-sacrifice by White in the game Peev-Pedersen. An interesting fight. Yugoslavia 1 The two most recent books are about the Benko Gambit, one by Steffen Pedersen, which I've already mentioned favourably in this column, and the other by Bryon Jacobs and Andrew Kinsman.

The Benko Gambit is still used regularly in international chess. Following Benko's lead over 30 years ago, a set of GMs has always been interested in playing 1. Today, we find it used by leading GMs such as Topalov, Adams, Khalifman, Polgar, and Leko, indicating the respectability the gambit has achieved.

To my mind, despite efforts by Benko, Levy, Ravikumar, and Jacobs himself , there has been a large and persistent gap in the theoretical literature on this popular opening, especially when we go beyond explaining the stereotyped ways in which Black tends deploy his forces and what happens in the ideal endgame.

I feel that John Fedorowicz' book revised remained the best treatment until the two books above appeared, but it was rapidly becoming too dated. Happily, both Pedersen's work and Jacobs and Kinsman's effort lay out all the variations, utilize large and relevant databases, identify which lines are currently critical for both sides, and add their own ideas and thoughts. Both books are excellent, and although most players can probably get by with just one of them, the true Benko fanatic will probably want both.

Although the Jacobs and Kinsman book appeared later, it was apparently held up in the publishing process, and neither book had the advantage of using the other. I also find it interesting that none of these authors if I'm doing the database search correctly has a large number of published games in this opening, although they do such an excellent job of covering it. IM Andrew Martin, by the way, contributed both the thorough Introduction to the Batsford book and the notes to five games.

I compared the books for various lines. My first test was the cruelest: recently the move Rb1 has become popular in the Fianchetto variation 4. Bg2 d6 8. Nc3 Bg7 9. Nf3 Nbd7. White wants to play b3 or even a3, and by not castling, he avoids Rb1 Bc4, recovering the pawn. Tisdall's ChessPublishing site has been raving about White's chances reflected in an overwhelming winning ratio of late , so I wanted to see what these two books had to say.

Of course, this is not very fair, since both sources to some extent seem to depend upon Black's idea of an early …Nb6 to discourage Rb1, and White's delayed castling is a new idea. As it turns out, deprived of this trick, both books are quite objective and tend to show wins and advantages for White throughout their notes. Both give possible alternatives for Black, but not at all fleshed-out. In the end, Black still has a lot of work to do in this line, and it should prove to be a very handy White weapon.

I looked at some irregular fourth moves, e. In this case, both books seem to acknowledge the White advantage after 4…bxc4, and SP does a slightly better job of covering 4…b4, especially in his unequivocal rejection of 5. On the other hand, while SP gives more detail following 4. Nd2 g5 7. Be5 Rg8 8. Qc2 Nxd2 9. Bc3, given by Seirawan and a bit better for White, is easily met by 8…Qxd2! Both books' coverage of the topical 4.

Nf3 lines is excellent. Both books offer plenty of suggested improvements, and get high points for originality; but perhaps a bit too often, the suggestions are one-movers and not pursued.Jacob Aagaard - Dutch Stonewall. Bf4, which precludes that defence and offers another set of difficult problems. Bf4, and the Fianchetto Variation with g3. Bg2 d6 8. The Benko Gambit is undoubtedly one of Black's most exciting openings.

Ultimately, then, I can probably fairly recommend these volumes to hard-core Benoni players, and to players of White who want one of the volumes as a reference for their favourite anti-Benoni system.
