Benko Gambit 5…e6

Benko Gambit 5…e6


Hello everyone, Good day welcome to my
YouTube Channel , today, we’re going to study about Benko Gambit move 5…e6
let’s go to the game between Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura and Grandmaster Daniil
Dubov, let’s start by playing their moves after d4, Nf6, c4, c5, d5, b5
Which is the Benko Gambit, cxb5, a6, ba6 other than ba6, there are other
variations which is b6. after a6 so we play b6, first, the idea of not taking
the pawn at a6 is to create an isolated pawn in blacks queen side
position so as we continue, e6, Nc3, Nd5 Nd5, exd5 Qxd5 attacking the rook,
Nc6 then Nf3 going to e5 then Rb8 avoiding the indirect
attack of the Queen to the Rook then Ne5 Qf6 protecting f7 mate, and the
protection of c6 Knight to. Nc6, dc6, white has already created double
pawn for black but looks okay to me because black is soon fully develop.
Qf3 tries to exchange the Queen at f6 and will create another double
pawn but after Be7 will support it. iI we analyze this position I would
prefer black’s position because the pawn also at b6 is ready to be captured. It’s
well develop just one move, it castles already so I like black so let’s go to
the other variation after ba6, then we go to g6 line. Nf3, Bg7, g 3
which is the Fianchetto variation castles, Bg2, d6, castles, Nbd7,
h3, avoiding Ng4 to Ne5 so next move , Qa5, Nc3,
Ba6, Re1, Rfb8, Qc2 so this is the Fianchetto Variation of
white. To be able to penetrate this position is to pressure the c4
and b5 square by Ne8, Nc7, Nb5 also Nb6 to Nc4. the main
idea why black is placing the Rook at a8 and Rook at b8 is to be able to
penetrate one of those pawns like b2 and a2. The main plan is to get at least or
capture at least one of these pawns to create an isolated pawn that’s the real
motive by the help also of this diagonal Bishop here which is
slightly hiding but there’s venom out of it.
It’s dangerous Bishop so as we continue with other lines like Nc3 say
after ba6 then after g6 line, Nf3, Bg7 then
Nc3 line so castles, d6, Bd3 Nbd7, castles, Qa5, h3 avoiding
Ng4 and now Ba6, Bishop takes, Queen takes, Qc2 same pattern,
Rfb8, attacking those examples that I’d shown you so again we have
considered another line so another line again which is Ba6 from here so
instead of castling, black will play Ba6
then we continue, e4, Bxf1, Kf1, d6, g3, castles, Kg2, Nbd7, h3,
avoiding Ng4, Qa5, Bd2, Rfb8, Qc2 same pattern and same idea
that black should execute, be aware just this Bishop is threatening indirectly but the right post
for queen is a6 here which is safe so after Qa5, Qa6 in the later move so
that it won’t be attacked by the bishop. Now we’re going to the main line,
e6, after ba6, then e6. Why have I chose “e6” line, I don’t even
know about this variation until I have seen the game of GM Dubov,
I’m really am inspired to show it to you and to share it with you how valuable
this opening idea you can learn a lot of strategy and and tactics out of it
and you can use it also as an opening weapon. So we continue with the main
lines Nc3, exd5, Nxd5, Be7 is what GM Dubov chose to
respond after Nd5 but there are other variations out of that. Let us see say
like Nxd5, Qxd5, Nc6 e4, takes, takes, Queen check, Bd2
Queen takes, Bc3, Be7 sorry, attacking the pawn a g7 but there
is Rg8 is very good for black, not good idea to take pawns just
like that without any plans at all so we go back to the position after Bc3 then
there are other moves such as Rd1 which is attacking the d7 pawn check but
with the good move of Nd4 blocking the bishop and the attack from d7,
the knight is lesser value than the bishops at c3 because Bc3 is
really threatening so exchanging is a great idea so let’s
see Bd4, cd4, a3, avoiding Qa2, castles, Nf3 then
Rab8, takes, d5 – this pawn push is a great idea since the King right now cannot castle
because there’s diagonal control bye the Queen so just in case
Queen takes, then rock a Rfd8, Qa2, Bishop check, that is the end of the game
since it cannot stop from covering that check if takes then the Queen is
hanging, so the only move is Nd2 takes, rook takes, rook takes, King takes,
Rd8 check, Kc1, then Qd3 is winning wins the game. So we go back
to the variation after Rd1, so there is the other variation other Rd1
which is Ne2 instead of Rd1 after an Ne2 then castles, Qc4, he is
threatening pawn at a2 and e4 which is having a good game by black so I
don’t complain with this position as long as pieces are active and all
pieces into right plan to execute, So let’s go back to the main line after
Be7 so considering this line if Hikaru is
trying to attack the set up of black but how you know if I’m white here
I just play conservatively or just consider develop because there are too
many tricky moves by black here so I follow Hikaru would play like e3
which is really safe so if just in case I would take the e7 here like Ne7, if
we go back say Ne7, then Qe7, Bf4, d5, if Bb8, takes, check, Bd7,
Qa3, c4 takes, takes, black is ok, the pawn at b2 is easy to capture if Rb1
Bf5, pawn here is easily to be captured also I prefer black position
well developed so as we come back again from the Ne7, Qe7 line we go to the other
variation after d5, then Nf3 as we go to this line still there there are
ways to recover that pawn at a6 since it’s already there hanging anyway
so as Ne4 , Rc1, Bishop takes Rook takes, castles
but all pieces all black is very active let’s see how it goes
Nd2, takes, Queen takes, then Na5 threatening Nb3 and Nc4
comparing this Night to this Bishop, I prefer this Night because it create
pressure on on this pawns later so even though it’s one pawn down there is great
activity by the Knight. So let’s go back to the main variation now, say, after e3
Black just castles, Ne2, Knight takes Queen takes, Rook takes. This Rook
is Fantastic because it goes to g6, it goes to e6, goes to d6, its very
active then Nc3, Bishop it’s attacking the Rook then Rd6, Queen
cannot take the c5pawn because there’s discovered check, after Qf3,
Nc6, Be2, developing to castle, Bb7 indirectly attacking the Queen, castles
then Qa8 – a very good move supporting the
bishop if you can see the position of white here.
Bc1 – Inactive, can’t go to d2 because of the Rook, Rook here cannot go out, cannot play at all it’s cramped position only way to do to
make this bishop active is by way of pushing the e4 pawn but there’s a
problem, there’s a knight hop at d4 so to compensate with at least the position of
white is now open as the bishop will go to e3 or some squares to
use his ability as a dark square Bishop. So we go now as Qh5 then black
plays Be4, exchanging the black Bishop to the Knight at c3, I
don’t agree with but there’s another way to move is Knight takes Bishop, if Queen
takes, then, there’s Ba6 attacking the Rook also Queen has to avoid that
then Bishop capture, lets me show you again, if if it’s Ne2 – then Bishop
e4, I would prefer black again here – 2 Bishops – towords King side double
attack because the Rook is soon going to g6 have a central pawn and there’s the
promise of winning position and on black side here but let’s go to the main
variation as it goes Queen takes bishop, avoids, just stay at d1, to stay
two bishops against Knight and Bishop for Black. Rg6 mating King at g2 to
protect, check, Queen takes then a4, this position now is balanced because GM Hikaru has great a4
passed pawn and it’s a dangerous pass pawn, black has to do something to
pressure also so GM Dubov played Bf6 penetrating
the pawn b2, Be3, just allowing to capture the b2 by black
but Bishop also is attacking c5 c4, Qf5 so that it will watch the d
pawn from promoting, Qc4 attacking the a pawn, Qb5 what a
move it allows exchanges but then Hikaru missed this move from Black. Rg2, – Kg2, – Qg4, Kh1, Qf3, Kg1, Qg4 check, is a perpetual
check therefore it is a DRAW. All chess players who watched this presentation
