Another thing about this book that is also incredible is the fact that after EVERY game, Pinski has a Game Conclusion...not every chapter but every game! Which helps reinforce man ideas and plans and to also explain where the losing player went wrong. That is provided on top of his lucid "in game" annotions.
All in all, this is an excellent book on the Benko, while his love for this system is evident and inspiring. I would even reccommend that you take up this opening because it causes quite a few headaches for white players who don't know how to handle it well, especially club players. The Benko is both extremely sound, and fully playable, providing complete winning chances. Pal Benko (creator of this gambit) only lost 3 games in his career I believe with this opening.
Can't reccomend this book enough.
Please rate accordingly if this review was helpful.
Benko structures are covered, as well as typical thematic ideas. Not that the Benko accepted is overly subtle, but various ways of creating pressure down the a and b files are critical techniques. As in any good chess book, it includes an index of variations, which is very helpful.
In summary: Useful, detailed, and a high quality book.
Chapters 1-3 follow Benko Gambit fully accepted lines:
Chapter 1 follows the line 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 b5 4.cxb5 a6 5.bxa6 g6! and features 3 illustrative games.
Chapter 2 follows the line " " 6. Nc3 Bxa6 7.e4 and featues 8 illustrative games.
Chapter 3. follows the line " " 6.g3 and features 8 illustrative games.
Chapters 4-7 follow Benko Gambit partially declined lines:
Chapter 4. follows the line " " 5.b6!? and features 5 illustrative games.
Chapter 5. follows the line " " 5.e3 and features 4 illustrative games.
Chapter 6. follows the line " " 5.f3 and featutes 5 illustrative games.
Chapter 7. follows the line " " 5. Nc3 axb5! and features 2 illustrative games.
Chapter 8 briefly canvases 5 Benko Gambit fully declined lines: 4.Bg5, 4.Qc2, 4.Nf3, 4.Nd2 and 4.a4
This book needs to be complimented with the 2011 Play the Benko Gambit, which also does not cover enough alterntative lines and lacks comprehensive analysis of the illustrative games. However it gives a more detailed covereage of 5. f3, 5. b6 and canvases 7 other Benko Gambit Declined lines. It also covers two "anit Benko lines": 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.Nf3 and 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3. d5 b5 4.Bg5 Ne4.
