  Sneaky: This is sometimes known as the Nescafe™ Frappe Attack for reasons which are rather obscure...
Feb-01-02  bishop: A superficial look tells me that 8...g6 was a mistake and the game could not be saved after that!

  Sneaky: The thing that I love the most about this two-pawn gambit is that your typical Benko player is skilled in the endgame, likes closed positions, and wants to avoid extremely sharp lines.

This gambit produces exactly the kind of positions which such a player loathes to play! Bwahahahahaha

Jun-20-03  actual: yuck!..I'm glad that I wasn't on the receiving end of this one.

  Sneaky: Most Benko players at my level go wrong very early against this play, e.g. 7...Nxe4? which loses a piece to 8.Qe2 (8...Nf6?? 9.Nd6# ha!)

Another common deviation from Black is to try to get an early ...Qa5 in, on the 5th move for example.

Jan-11-04  Taidanii: Talk about a slaughter.
Jun-28-04  AgentRgent: <Shadout Mapes> 8...g6 is an error, after 8...Nbd7 black has little to fear (W 21% B 60% D 19% according to's data).
