  GrahamClayton: A classic example of the Q-side minority attack, eg 13. b4 and 20. b5.

  Breunor: Why would Ljubojevic play this kind of game against Karpov? At this kind of position Karpov is an absolute magician!

Ljubojevic had black against Karpov 31 times. Was he supposed to play 31 Benko gambits?

Anyway, sometimes this approach worked.
