Aug-09-07  RookFile: Benko plays Fischer's own Bc4 against him, and comes close to winning.
May-09-08  CharlesSullivan: Benko often got a good game against Fischer. Here Fischer blunders with 35...gxh4, but Benko misses 36.♕e2! e5 <or 36...♖f7 37.♖xh4 ♖xd5 (White's threat was 38.♕g4+ ♔f8 39.♖h8#) 38.cxd5 ♕c5+ 39.♖f2 ♕xd5 40.♕g4+ ♕g5 41.♕h3 is convincing> 37.♖xh4 ♕f7 38.♕d2! and White wins a rook or mates.

I wonder why two large rooks are behind the clock?

but they are dead center.
