Tired of positional play?

Looking for an active opening, no one is really prepared for?

IM Marcin Sieciechowicz’s top pick… the Benko Gambit.

It goes like this.

You give up the b-pawn (sometimes the a-pawn too). In exchange, you get an incredible amount of activity on the Queen’s Side, two monster bishops, an active rook, and loads of attacking plans to pick from.

Benko Gambit for Black

Trust me, you won’t see too many draws here.

What you will learn:

  • The b6 Variation – White doesn’t grab the a-pawn and keeps the a-file all locked up? No worries. IM Sieciechowicz breaks down the best moves to handle White’s favorite third moves like f3, e3, and b6.
  • Fianchetto Variation – IM Sieciechowicz’s top choice is the Nfd7 setup with King’s Side Fianchetto. Great surprise alternative to the main line and it opens up a bunch of extra options for Black.
  • King Walk Variation – Whtie decided to relocate their king to h2? Big mistake. IM Sieciechowicz will show you how to take advantage of ‘free tempi’ and activate a massive attack on the Queen’s Side (2 Rooks + Queen + Bishop!)
