Is there still hope in the King Walk variation ?
Hi Benko lovers,
my understanding is that the two following variations are difficult to handle for black at the moment:
- 5.e3
- 12.a4 in the King Walk
My hope is that the followin...

Perunovic variation/ Modern Benko
I hope there is someone that can compare the statistics I get from TWIC with Megabase 2016 in the Perunovic/ Modern Benko variation. The moves usually played is this:
[pgn][Event "Qatar M...|/pgn]
Now, in my TWIC it says:
1-0     = 16  = 46%
Draw  = 34
0-1     = 21   = 54%
71 games in total when I filter the players by 2200.
If I filter the player at 2500 its 8 games and 53/47 in whites favour. Quite normal. 
So its the Modern Benko (Flear) or the Perunovic variation here to stay according to the Megabase 2016, or what? I d hope so

Benko question against 1.d4 2.Nf3
So is there still a possibility to transpose into a benko after
1.d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 g6 3. c4 c5 4.d5 b5
or why is it said benko wouldn't be possible after 2.Nf3?

Any opinions on "The Benko Gambit: Move by Move"?
I have almost all books about the Benko and wonder if this one is a good addition, or more suited for starters with the Benko.
