  chancho: Pal Benko did not get much sleep when he played this game.(He was enjoying the Budapest nightlife) He decided to play aggresively with the black pieces and won the game in spectacular fashion.

  GrahamClayton: Korody probably expected Benko to recapture with 11...♘xf6, when 12. ♗b5+ ♘d7 13. ♘e5 ♗b7 14. ♕f3 gives him a winning position, due to the double attack on f7 and a8.

Devastating attack by Benko, showing how powerful a rook on an open file and two bishops on adjacent diagonals are.

This finish is Blackburne's Mate pattern by the raking bishops supported by the knight.
