Feb-21-12  optimal play: In this very early example of the Benko gambit White can't seem to get any development, in fact after 14 moves all of his pieces are back on their home squares?! This makes it pretty easy for Black and after 21.Kxf1 then 21...Nxh2+ 22.Ke2 Nxf3 23.Kxf3 Rfe8 wins easily, with the Knight & Rook virtually useless.
May-20-13  ariel el luchador: Creo que las blancas debían jugar 6)A5CR con buen juego
Oct-29-13  rwbean: This is the oldest game with the first three moves in this order according to Wikipedia.

Black could have won immediately with 14... ♘e4 and White should definitely have tried 14. ♗e2 followed by o-o.
