|May-17-11|| ||profK: A cute minature that should be seen by all KGA proponents...|
|May-17-11|| ||MaxxLange: It's a defense to the King's Gambit that's been known to be no good at all, for more than 100 years, but, if that's your idea of real chess, enjoy.|
|May-17-11|| ||MaxxLange: It is a pretty bust, with all the piece sacs.|
|May-17-11|| ||Sho: View Mark Hebden vs Joel Benjamin (1987) on CG, same opening.|
|May-17-11|| ||MaxxLange: Really! I'll look at that. I thought the "long whip" variation (5....h5 and 6...Rh7) was in the ol' dustbin of history.|
|May-21-11|| ||Sho: My bad, 6...Nh6.|
|May-22-11|| ||MaxxLange: it's still the "Long Whip" variation. after 5...h5, right? |
6...Nh6 looks better than Captain Evans' 6...Rh7, but Black should not even be in this position...play 5...Nf6 or 5....d6, not 5...h5?
|May-22-11|| ||perfidious: <MaxxLange> If Black would be so obliging as to play into the Long Whip, I'd always play the gambit!|
See the following game, where Black introduces a new idea in the old main line:
Fedorov vs Ivanchuk, 2001.
In a subsequent 2001 game, Fedorov even went so far as to abandon his beloved King's Gambit against Ivanchuk.

That would be Hebden vs J Benjamin, 1987 (Jon, not Joel).
