Jan-21-06  BIDMONFA: Juan Manuel Bellon Lopez

May-09-07  TommyC: Is it definitely true, does anyone know, that Bellón has not offered a draw since 1978:~


- ?

Any more details as to why not? And which game and move saw his last offer of a draw, all those years ago?

May-08-08  whiteshark: Player of the Day

No games with the <Bellon Gambit>: 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Nf3 b5!? in Opening Explorer

May-08-08  whiteshark: Oh, wait, real <Bellon Gambit> is after <1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Nf3 e4 4.Ng5 b5 <>> and here are the games: Opening Explorer
Jan-31-09  waustad: I don't know who suggested it, but at Gib-Tel '09, he played a 10 move draw with white against Stefanova. Maybe he had to babysit. His wife was playing an 84 mover beating Jovanka Houska.
May-08-10  wordfunph: GM Bellon Lopez turns 60 today...happy birthday!
Dec-12-10  Dredge Rivers: He's a Bellonare!
May-08-12  waustad: Happy b'day.
Jan-22-13  waustad: After winning in the first round at Gibtel, his reward is to get to play Alexei Shirov. At least he gets to be white.
