Aug-02-04  shr0pshire: Benjamin analyzes this game:

It is fun to watch Benjamin analyze his own game.

Aug-02-04  Dick Brain: A couple nice shots I bet most people would miss 32. Qxh6. A slight grumble in that neither 29...Qb5 or 32...Nf5 look like the best move.
Nov-25-04  morphy234: This is Joey's best game!! why not on his "best games" list??
Nov-27-04  mjk: Benjamin shows that 12...b5 is weak. That makes Black's ♕ poorly positioned, and he needs to look for an improvement earlier.
Jul-31-05  stijn: This game is really great.
Aug-08-05  Chessography: Why not 32... Rf6? (question mark representing confusion, not that it may be a bad move)
Aug-08-05  Chessography: I really don't understand 12... b5. It just seems that the pawn hanging by a thread.
Sep-22-05  Averageguy: I think that Gufeld was playing for tricks with the e4 pawn with 12...b5.
Apr-12-06  Chessography: I know that the pawn on b5 can't be taken right away, but it is a long-term weakness and Black probably does not have enough compensation in the open a-file.

  FSR: Benjamin couldn't stand Gufeld, and had a rough time against (2-3 in five games, all with Benjamin playing White),, so he must have particularly enjoyed this elegant win.
