Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-30-04  Knight13: White wins the rook. That was a good move. Good game.
Feb-16-05  Gowe: 33. A4!!, wonderful move, great way to win a difficult match.
Feb-16-05  iron maiden: 39...a3 40. Rb3 a2 41. Ra3 stops the pawn and retains the rook.
Apr-14-06  IMDONE4: h4 was a great move rather than the terrible Nf3 he played against Keres. However, Benko also made some severe mistakes later on that caused him to lose the game after several concessions on the queenside and the fatal mistake of allowing white's rook the open b file.
Dec-17-06  refutor: any thoughts on 16. ...Nde5 as an alternative?
Oct-15-07  D4n: 35. Rb+ pretty crafty.

  kingscrusher: Benko has a sense of humour in joining the Russians to test Fischer in this variation of the Caro-Kann!
Nov-08-19  pepechuy: Did Fischer really play 38. Kh1? (it is a question, I am not implying it is a bad move).

In "The best endings of Capablanca and Fischer", it is 38. Kg1.

Nov-08-19  Olavi: The tournament book by Gligoric/Ragozin and a Yugoslav Fischer collection have 38.Kh1.
