  Jonathan Sarfati: The Benkő Gambit should be called the Opočenský Gambit. All the main points are there, just delayed a few moves. This quick win attracted Alekhine's attention (107 Great Chess Battles, 1939-1945) He also played it against a very strong opponent but not so successfully in Keres vs Opocensky, 1937
