|May-14-04|| ||Lawrence: When asked what he thought about 27.a4 Junior replied "I am not amused." White's moves 33 and 34 were no cause for mirth either. |

Yes. Black gets quite an attack in the Benko but as comp White often gets passed a+b pawns. That's what he gets here, but he gives them away in consecutive moves.
|May-07-17|| ||Eusebius: Very nice how Benko keeps the pressure on. Black's bishop on g7 was nasty for white.|
|May-07-17|| ||offramp: Yesterday, Kmoch vs Alekhine, 1926, we saw Kmoch playing a Dutch Kmoch. Today Benko plays a Benko.|
|May-07-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: Tomorrow, we're not likely to see Vukic playing a Vukic. That's discrimination for you!
I was expecting 26..Bxd4 but the game line cxd4 was much better because it created the mighty passed pawn. I wonder who taught Benko to play the Benko so well?|
|May-07-17|| ||RandomVisitor: After 19...Qd7 white is doing well but needs to generate some threats in order to maintain the tension. Perhaps it is time for 20.a4.|

|May-07-17|| ||morfishine: <offramp> I've complained that that too often <CG> highlights Benko losses; but he won many brilliant games against very tough competition. So here, we get a Benko victory, but alas, its primarily due to the opponent's howler(s), one after the other :(|

|May-08-17|| ||protonchess: @RandomVisitor: The fact that the engine plays 20. .. Qh3 and then 21. .. Qd7 should tell you all you need about the depth of meaning of this "analysis".|
It is so sad that brute force completely eliminated other approaches to chess programming. Where is Google when we need them?
