Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-22-11  FinnPatzer: This game was examined in the Guardian chess column on 21 November 2011 ( Black's 14th move is really surprising.

Nobody seems to have spotted the obvious mate in two that black missed at move 37, presumably due to time pressure.

Nov-22-11  King Death: <FinnPatzer> Here's another Benjamin special from a long time ago which was in a time scramble. B Kogan vs J Benjamin, 1981
Nov-24-11  FinnPatzer: And JB missed a mate in two in that game, too, though he played it one move later.
Apr-14-15  SpiritedReposte: Once black got that f-file opened up and rooks doubled, watch out.
