Pal Benko left the world of chess an enormous legacy. Not only was he a formidable study composer, he also gave his name to the gambit line 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 b5. In this DVD, Erwin l’Ami guides you through the fascinating Benko Gambit. As early as move three Black starts a fight for the initiative, a strategy that has proved to be successful in countless amateur and master level games.
Through model games l’Ami explains all topical lines of the Benko Gambit, occasionally asking the viewer interactive questions that help the viewer to grasp the ideas behind this opening. The exercises on this DVD will also surely be of help. Many top players followed in Benko’s footsteps, most notably Garry Kasparov, Veselin Topalov, and Magnus Carlsen. Will you be next?
