  Sneaky: If you're like me, you play 1.d4 and get annoyed at the huge number of people employing the Grunfeld. You get a nice center but it's so flimsy and loose, soon the wood starts flying and it's Black with the nice outside pawn majority on the queenside.

According to the Opening Explorer, accepting the gambit with 10.Bxc3+ works out disastrously for Black.

Better perhaps is 10.Ne5, but after 11. Nxe5 Bxe5 12. Qd2 e6 13. f4 Bg7 14. c4 White has an excellent grip on the center, is inhibiting Black's natural development of the QB due to the threat on b7, and has a passed d-pawn, in short Black is busted. The statistics confirm that evaluation: 1-0=52.9% 1/2-1/2=41.2% 0-1=diddly squat.

  Jim Bartle: What if you play 3. f3 to avoid the typical Grunfeld lines? If black plays 3. ...d5 then white gets the nice center without exchanging off a knight. Or black can let white play the KID Samisch.
Mar-12-07  RookFile: Also 3. f3 c5 4. d5 b5 is one of the better lines for black in the Benko Gambit.
Mar-06-19  cunctatorg: Beautiful chess by both Grand-masters in a very advantageous opening.
