Re: Benko-Volga group 1
Some entrants are yet to make a move. I strongly urge you to get down to your good bookshop and get a copy of "Spud's guide to corr Mots". A marathon session today; over 60 moves.Very enjoyable. Thanks Spud.

Re: Benko-Volga group 1
And just for good measure, does anyone from Group 1 want to get a side-game of the Benko-Volga? I'm open for more beatings ...

Re: Benko-Volga group 1
a strange thing about corr games, is the insane blunders you can make, even though you have all the time in the world . I should know. I've had more than my fair share.This time it was Kingsfull turn.

Re: Benko-Volga group 1
Good win, Kingsfull. I overlooked your queen and knight and paid the price. I am left with no option but to take it out on Grim with me as white.
