The games include analysis and diagrams. I will place the actual games on separatepages listed by the opponent played. (Click HERE to learn more about Pal Benko, whom thisopening is named after.) The former soviets call this opening the Volga Gambit, BenkoVariation.In the Benko Gambit Black usually sacrifices a pawn on the Queenside for an attack there.White can accept or decline this sacrifice. Either way, White usually attacks on the Kingside.Often, in the gambit accepted lines, White is so busy defending his Queenside that he nevergets an attack going on the Kingside. The move order may vary, but the typical Benko Gambitstarts something like this:1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 b5 1/4
    • Benko Gambit After 3… b5If White accepts the gambit then play will usually continue 4.cxb5 a6Benko Gambit after 4… a6 2/4
    • Here Black offers a second pawn. White may accept by capturing on a6 or decline, usually byplaying 5. b6. The gambit accepted line would then continue 5. bxa6 Bxa6.Benko Gambit after 5… Bxa6Black will continue developing and end up with a set up that looks something like the diagrambelow. 3/4
    • Benko Gambit after 13… Rfb8 Black has given up a pawn for pressure along the a and b files and along the a1 to h8 diagonal. White’s pawns on the a and b files are now targets for Black to attack. This is considered a positional gambit rather than a tactical one. A list of games in the Benko Gambit is below.
