Dec-01-04  siggemannen: modern players playing Benoni/Benko deserve respect even if i don't know much about this particular dude
Dec-01-04  mahmoudkubba: <siggemannen>:and why is that?? Is there is any especialty in Benoni/Benko when playing in Black?? please explaine to me
Dec-01-04  mahmoudkubba: <siggemannen>:Or is it because u love Benoni/Benko so much for example that u can't deserve writing about both of them when playing on black!! (chessical ones=!!)??
Dec-02-04  siggemannen: <mahmoudkubba> Well, yeah, I love those openings, not the boring Nimzoopenings everyone is playing. Also, who plays benoni plays for the win or loss and that i like most
