Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-30-06  midknightblue: This may be one of the most definitive recent games on the Epishin variation of the benko gambit. Both players seem to know the theory cold, and black attempts (maybe succeeds) in demonstrating that the line is not busted.
Jan-15-09  KingG: It doesn't sound like Van der Weide will be defending this line much in the future:
Jul-28-09  WhiteRook48: so will he be playing against 4 Nf3?
