May-26-07  Whitehat1963: What a complex exchange beginning after 18...Ndf6. I can't understand the nuances, don't see all the perils. But I do love the queen trap and the queen sac later. Definitely worthy of your time. (Player of the Day)

  whiteshark: <Attila Schneider'> 3 volume monograph on Benoni says <11... b5!?> instead of <11... a6?>.

Quoting this game Schneider also says <14... Re8?!>, because the point f7 becomes weak.

After <17. Lc4> white is already better, treating d6 giving him good tactical possibilities.

Mainline after <11... b5!?> : 12. Bxb5 Sxe4 13. Nxe4 Qa5+ 14. Nfd2!? Bxb5 15. Nxd6 Ba6 16. 0-0-0 Nd7 18. Ne4! Nb6 19. Ne3 Be2! 20. Rd2 c4 21. Qb5 Bd3 .... well, it's a different game.
