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...

Does anyone have any good repertoire suggestions for playing the Benko against, say, 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3? Is the best bet to head into a Kings Indian with 2...g6?
Are there any interesting move orders...

Perunovic is writing a book on the Benko
According to the Thinkers Publishing website, Perunovic's The Hyper Modernized Benko Gambit will be appearing in December. I look very forward to this, as I assume other Benko aficionados will.

Benko via 1...Nf6 or 1...c5?

Perunovic variation/ Modern Benko
Hi.
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
GG

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?

Chance of Benko via 1.d4 Nf6 compared to 1.d4 c5?
Does one have more chance of reaching a Benko via 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 b5 or via 1.d4 c5 2.d5 Nf6 3.c4 b5 (at amateur-level, ca. 1650-1950)?
