  1. Igor I have a 90+30 tournament coming up in a week. Now, you’ve recommended Benko in your opening lab course. By that, you also recommend the blumenfeld too because it’s nearly the same thing in concept right? Question is, against 1.d4 as black, can I play those openings even in standard tournament and even if I get paired up against GMs and IMs? Although in standard time controls I haven’t played benko or blumenfeld but only QGD and Nimzo, but I did play couple of blitz games on internet using Benko and I won all of them and found it really good. Although it has to be said that I haven’t played so much standard time control FIDE tournaments in general either, here’s my FIDE profile:

    So, may I play Benko and Blumenfeld or should I stick to QGD and Nimzo? I feel that Benko or Blumenfeld could be good surprise weapons.

    1. Hi Lovro,

      In short, yes you may play Benko.
      It will work perfectly fine against IMs. Against GMs it may be tougher, but against GMs it’s hard in any opening 🙂

      The main thing in any opening is to know it well, and to ‘feel’ it (it should suite your style, you should understand typical plans etc). If you had good results in Benko – it proves it’s suitable for you.

      Best of luck in the tournament!

      1. Thanks for the reply and good wishes in tournament!

        Currently the only thing I don’t understand in Benko is when to capture on a6 with bishop and when with knight – you said that when white goes b3 then with knight but otherwise with bishop, I don’t quite get it.

        Btw, currently there are only 2 GMs registered to play(tournament starts in a week) – they are both rated 2400-2500. What struck me as very surprising is that one of those 2 GMs last year played in the same tournament and managed to get -5 lost position as white against a 1603 rated opponent!! Unfortunately, black blundered later and lost. It was a spanish game and black got the tempos on g5 bishop with h6 and g5 and got the winning attack – seems like the GM didn’t watch your Breaking Stereotypes lessons! 😀 Anyways, it’s probably a lucky exception.

        Finally, here’s the tournament:

        1. Hi Lovro,

          One thing for sure – you should not play ‘theoretical’ opening moves if you don’t quite understand them. Rely on your general understanding instead. Since you studied RCA courses, your understanding is already much better compared to most of your opponents.
          As for Benko – you may simply take on a6 with a bishop, it’s correct in 99% of the cases.

          Finally, don’t forget to play a few training games against computer before your tournament begins. This will be a useful warm up.
