For those of you who saw my King's Indian blog, you know what's coming. For those who didn't, enjoy!

Below you'll find in puzzle-format all of the MCO variations for the Bënko Gambit. For the sake of being thorough every MCO line is included. Don't be overwhelmed! By no means should all of these variations be memorized. This document was created for all 1.d4 players, with their many personalities and many preferred lines, looking to develop a fuller repertoire.

NAHHHH, KIDDING.
This blog post has not yet achieved its true destiny, to become a dedicated resource for both players playing against and with the White pieces in the Bënko Gambit. In time, it will include wonderful sparkly YouTube videos, rounds robins of the lines between chess engines, annotations of moves and explorations of traps...ahh, can you see it now?
No, no you can't because right now the only thing this blog is is an opportunity for me to troll you. You can see the actual work being done on the Bënko Gambit on marbh_shainn's blog.
