  Chessdreamer: According to the tournament bulletin Bisguier actually resigned after 45.Bxf6.
Jan-11-09  Shams: 45...Qxg6 46.hxg6 gxf6 47.Ne6 trapping the king is really nice.
Feb-16-09  jerseybob: I don't know who's in charge of assigning opening names in this database, but this is clearly a King's Indian Reversed. But by whatever name, a fine game by Benko. 21.a4! and 22.b3! are star moves, tying it up on the left to be free on the right.
Jan-26-20  thoughtless2: @jerseybob, jumping up on your idea, the move 21.a4 also stood out to me, but didn't it give black the opportunity to open up the b file with 21.bxa4 and then follow it up by putting his major pieces on the b file and targeting white's b pawn? Is that not and adequate plan for black?
