Dec-02-05  midknightblue: 17...Rg6?. 17....f6 and black is slightly better despite having a pinned piece (using fritz 8 and an opening book to help verify my analysis). This game is important for benko gambit theory, with the 5. b6 variation. It is discussed in the book The Benko Gambit by Pinski (which seems like an excellent book based on what I have read so far).
Apr-22-10  birthtimes: Interesting that no one has commented on this unexplored territory of critical important opening theory in the Benko Gambit. 16...Bxd5 seems better for Black, rather than 16...Nxd5, as in this game. For example, 16...Bxd5 17.Bxd5 Nxd5 18.O-O Nxc3 and Black is at least even, and heading into the endgame with the advantage of a good bishop versus a knight with pawns on both flanks...

  GrahamClayton: I am surprised that no-one has commented on Vladimirov's brilliant 21. ♗f6!!, putting the bishop en prise to four different pieces.
