Opening Advice.

Can anyone suggest a line for white against Benko Gambit?

I know plans from black side but confused which line is fine for white to hold.

I just do not feel comterble with g3 lines bec black's put so much pressure and I cant handle it well.

I like the e4 Bxf1 line now.

I need suggestions as white because I am preparing d4 too.

The most serious line against Benko gambit is the King Walk Variation with 12.a4.

Hi Abhi

This is Sunny, Pro Member, I am studying the benko gambit as Black. My rating is 2000+ on chess.com. Would you like to practice if you want to play white d4 move?

Thanks

sir I would love too but I also need advice against Benko.

I normally currently play e4 Bxf1 line with g3 Kg2 Ngf3 setup.

But I need more help.

Here is my chess.com id.

Abhi, 12.a4 is the most challenging line!
