Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-05-08  Abejorral: The white bishop never moved until move 23, and it seems dumb , but by not moving until then, Illescas loses a pawn, that finally together with some bad moves, made his defeat.

The rare Benko Gambit, i have played it myself, but i never win with it, i dont feel comfortable playing it.
