Commentary

  • Benko’s Opening, also known as the King’s Fianchetto Opening, is named for Pal Charles Benko (1928 - ?). Benko played this opening successfully against Fischer and Tal in the 1962 Curaçao Candidates Tournament. Benko’s Opening is likely to transpose into a variation of the English Opening or Queen’s Pawn Opening. There are few independent variations Black needs to be aware of. Accordingly, Black should attempt to achieve a Classical Dutch formation. Moves such as ‘...e6,’ ‘...Nf6,’ ‘...Nc6,’ ‘...Be7’ or ‘...Bb4’ followed by ‘...0-0’ will likely lead to lines covered in another section of this book.
