GM Joel Benjamin on the Philidor


New Jersey GM Joel Benjamin bids farewell to his Ask GM Joel column at USCF Online with "GM Joel on the Question He Always Wanted," in which he answers the question that I would have most liked to ask him myself this past year: what is his improvement on Stopa - Benjamin, World Open 2009?  A very satisfying answer for fans of the Antoshin Philidor.
