Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-22-14  zydeco: This is a massacre. Benko walks into it with 9....Nf6. Both 9....Ne7 and 9....d6 seem playable.

Keres had to calculate up to 14.b4 when he played 10.Ndxb5 -- and see that the queen has no good retreat.

If 14.....Qe7 15.exf6. If 14.....Qb6 15.Nd6+ Ke7 16.gxf6+ Kxd6 17.fxg7 Rg8 18.Bxh7+ (or 17....Re8 18.g8=Q Rxg8 19.Bxh7+).
