   May-11-15 J C Benjamin vs Graham Carter, 1975
 
Martin Benjamin: And it was Graham Carter, not H Carter
 
   May-11-15 L Gutman vs J C Benjamin, 1987
 
Martin Benjamin: This is another game accidentally attributed to GM Joel Benjamin, which was actually played by my brother Jon Benjamin, a strong British amateur, at the Chess for Peace tournament in London in 1987. John Saunders (British chess archivist) can confirm.
 
   May-11-15 J C Benjamin vs T Duester, 1987
 
Martin Benjamin: This is another game accidentally attributed to GM Joel Benjamin, which was actually played by my brother Jon Benjamin, a strong British amateur, at the Chess for Peace tournament in London in 1987. It was featured in the Daily Telegraph chess column by Malcolm Pein in May ...

Martin Benjamin: Mark - thanks for your comments. In reply, my older brother's name was Jon Benjamin and the game he won v Bogdan Lalic was at the Sutton Easter congress in the late eighties/early nineties. The reason it stuck in my mind was despite arriving 40 minutes late, Jon played a ...
 
   Mar-12-12 Hebden vs J C Benjamin, 1987 (replies)
 
Martin Benjamin: We are not related to Joel's family. Jon played mainly in London, and usually in evening leagues. He had some cracking wins in his occasional tournament play (e.g v Bogdan Lalic at Sutton in the 1980s), but most of his game scores have been lost, sadly. I still have a ...
 
   Mar-12-12 J C Benjamin vs Nunn, 1977
 
Martin Benjamin: I think this might be another example of a game being attributed erroneously to Joel Benjamin, when it was in fact played by Jon Benjamin, a strong British amateur (1958 - 2000) who was a student at Oxford at this time. (See other games in this database for the same ...
 
   Mar-12-12 J C Benjamin vs B Taborov, 1976 (replies)
 
Martin Benjamin: Many of the early games in this database are ascribed to Joel Benjamin, the USA GM, but were actually played by my brother Jon Benjamin (1958 - 2000), who was a strong amateur in the UK. The games against Rumens and Hebden. I think this is another example. All the games from
 
   Mar-12-12 D E Rumens vs J C Benjamin, 1976 (replies)
 
Martin Benjamin: This and many of the early games in this database are ascribed to Joel Benjamin, the USA GM, but were actually played by my brother Jon Benjamin (1958 - 2000), who was a strong amateur in the UK. The games against Rumens and Hebden, and all the games from Halsberg and ...
 
   Mar-12-12 Uhlmann vs J C Benjamin, 1971
 
Martin Benjamin: This game was from an Uhlmann simul when Jon was 12 (Jon was British by the way). It was published in CHESS magazine and annotated by John Littlewood. Even a prodigy like Joel would have struggled to produce this quality when aged seven! Given the identical names and ...
