Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-16-13  jerseybob: In those days the Benko gospel wasn't fully understood. Reshevsky's 10..b4? renounces q-side counterplay and gives white a free hand on the other wing. 10..e6 was better. But what white does with that free hand is still pretty, and for Bisguier, the high point of his U.S. Chess career(though if he'd won his game against RJF in the 1962 Chp., THAT would've certainly been bigger!).
Feb-16-13  RookFile: But this is a King's Indian, not a Benko. In other words, I don't think it's really an option for white to play 10. cxb5 axb5 11. Bxb5 because some sequence for black involving ....Qa5 and ...Nxe4 (or maybe ...Nxe4 and ....Qa5, with Bxc3+ tossed in) would yield him the advantage in that position.
Feb-16-13  jerseybob: I know it's not a Benko Gambit,but that idea can exist in other settings. And why go into a..b5 line if you're not prepared to sac a pawn? I'm just saying "maintain the tension", make white aware that he's not getting a free hand on the other wing. Actually, my suggested 10..e6 looks like a blunder after 11.e5!, but there must be other moves, like 10..Nbd7, anything but 10..b4. You see the result of that.
