Pál Benkö fallece a los 91 años

por Frederic Friedel
27/08/2019 – Ha fallecido Pal Benko. Era gran maestro de ajedrez y formaba parte de la elite mundial. Fue dos veces candidato al Campeonato del Mundo, amigo de Bobby Fischer, compositor de problemas y autor del famoso y épico "Gambito Benko" y de la apertura Benko 1.g3 (al jugarla en su momento les venció tanto a Fischer como a Tal). Pal Beko era un fiel amigo del equipo ChessBase y nos ha enviado artículos y problemas de ajedrez durante la última década. Le vamos echar mucho de menos.

Ha fallecido Pal Benko

La FIDE ha anunciado esta mañana:

"It is with the deepest sadness that we learnt about the passing of Pal Benko, a two-time candidate for the world title (1959 and 1962), as well as a renowned composer of endgame studies and chess problems. He was 91 years old.

To the chess family, Benko was a historical figure of legendary proportions, whose name and legacy will never be forgotten as long as people keep playing this game.

His love for chess and his contributions to many aspects of the game, from the opening to the endgame, were an inspiration to several generations of players. Very few in the history of the game demonstrated the inextricable link between art and chess quite as he did. He left behind an invaluable legacy, compiled on several books.

Besides, he was a fantastic individual, respected by everybody who crossed paths with him. His personal charm and bonhomie earned him countless friendships among his colleagues."

Problemas de ajedrez para recordar 

"El siguiente problema de ajedrez lo encontré hace más de cuarenta años y me encantaron cuando era un ajedrecista joven. Bueno, me sigue encantando".  

 

Ojalá aún no conozcan este problema de ajedrez. Tras una contemplación inicial, Ud. podrá mover las piezas sobre el tablero virtual para intentar encontrar el mate en ocho. 

Y el segundo problema probablemente es uno de los más elegantes que jamás hemos visto. 

Este problema fue ideado por el maestro Pal Benko, cuando solo tenía 15 años. Nos lo envió en 2011 cuando (mientras tanto) ya tenía 82 años. Lo publicamos en la web con noticias en inglés de ChessBase como uno de nuestros "Problemas de Ajedrez de Pascuas". 

Pal Benko nos comentó que se lo había planteado a su amigo Bobby Fischer durante la Olimpíada de Ajedrez de Lugano en 1968, apostando que Fischer no iba a ser capaz de solucionarlo en menos de media hora. Bobby Fischer perdió esa apuesta. 

 

He aquí un estudio del famoso problema creado por el gran Alexey Alexeyevich Troitzky:

[Event "Magyar Sakkvilág"] [Site "?"] [Date "1931.??.??"] [Round "?"] [White "Troitzky, A.."] [Black "White to play and win"] [Result "1-0"] [SetUp "1"] [FEN "1R4bq/p1p3p1/2p3Pb/k1P3PR/2P4P/p1K5/P7/8 w - - 0 1"] [PlyCount "21"] [EventDate "1931.??.??"] {If it were Black to move then Black would lose immediately: 1...Ka4 2.Ra8 a5 3.Rb8+- (or 1...Ka6 2.Kb4+-; or 1...a6 2.Ra8+-). So White needs to get the initial position of the study with Black to move. But while losing the tempo the white king needs to be very careful: it may not move to a white square, except c2, because otherwise the black bishop on g8 can give check and the queen takes the rook on b8; the white king also must not move to the squares c1, d2 or e3, otherwise the black bishop on h6 can check and the queen takes the rook on h5.} 1. Kc2 $2 (1. Kd4 $1 {Benko} Ka6 2. Ke5 Ka5 3. Kf4 Ka4 ({ because} 3... Bxg5+ 4. Kxg5 Qxh5+ 5. Kxh5 Bxc4 6. Rb1 $1 Ka4 (6... Bxa2 7. Ra1 {wins}) 7. Ra1 Kb4 8. Kg5 Bg8 9. h5 Kc3 10. h6 gxh6+ 11. Kxh6 Kb2 12. Rd1 Kxa2 13. Rd8 Be6 14. Rb8 Ka1 15. Kg5 {and Black must move, therefore White wins. So there is a great difference if the black king stands on a4 or a5 in move five.} )) 1... Ka4 2. Kd1 Ka5 3. Ke1 Ka6 4. Kf2 Ka5 5. Kg3 Ka4 6. Kf4 Ka5 ({ Unfortunately} 6... Bxg5+ {assures Black a draw:} 7. Kxg5 Qxh5+ 8. Kxh5 Bxc4 9. Rb7 a5 10. Rxc7 Bxa2 11. Rxg7 Be6 12. Rf7 Bxf7 13. gxf7 a2 14. f8=Q a1=Q) 7. Ke5 Ka4 8. Kd4 Ka5 9. Kc3 Ka4 (9... a6 10. Ra8) 10. Ra8 a5 11. Rb8 1-0

Primero, tal y como mencioné arriba, si les tocase a las negras, perderían inmediatamente.

O sea que, las blancas mueven el rey de tal manera que pueden regresar a su casilla original tras una cantidad impar de movimientos. La solución según el autor del problema es  1.Rc2 Ra4 2.Rd1 Ra5 3.Re1 Ra6 4.Rf2 Ra5 5.Rg3 Ra4 6.Rf4 Ra5 7.Re5 Ra4 8.Rd4 Ra5 9.Rc3 Ra4 [9...a6 10.Ta8] 10.Ta8 a5 11.Tb8+–.

En la solución de arriba, el movimiento 6...Axg5+ desafortunadamente le asegura unas tablas al jugador de las engras. Sin embargo, eso no es posible si el rey blanco se mueve hacia la otra dirección: 1.Rd4! Ra6 2.Re5 Ra5 3.Rf4 y entonces 3...Axg5+ ya no tiene éxito. (Reproduzcalo en el tablero interactivo arriba). O sea que, esa es la gran diferencia entre el rey negro estando en a4 o en a5 en el quinto movimiento. 

Tras haber rumiado mucho el estudio de Troitzky, he decidido analizarlo de manera profunda y para perfeccionar todavía más esa fantástica idea. He aquí el resultado:  

 

A ver si con el análisis proveído en la parte superior junto al respaldo del módulo Ud. puede solucionar este problema también. 

Perfeccionamiento cada 75 años 

"Es interesante ver que en su estudio original, Troitzky utilizó la idea de Sam Loyd tan solo 75 años mñas tarde. Ahora yo podría corregirlo y decir que yo también lo puedo perfeccionar tras otros 75 años más. "Troitzky mencionó en su libro el problema de Loyd del año 1856, un problema con mate en 14 movimientos. Comentó que se había desviado de la idea de Loyd. Desafortunadamente, el problema todavía no estaba perfectamente resuelto (véase el tablero interactivo que viene a continuación):  

[Event "New York Saturday Courier"] [Site "?"] [Date "1856.??.??"] [Round "?"] [White "Loyd, Sam"] [Black "Mate in 14 moves"] [Result "1-0"] [SetUp "1"] [FEN "8/8/5N2/8/3K1N1p/1p3knR/1Pp2prb/n1B2b1B w - - 0 1"] [PlyCount "27"] [EventDate "1856.??.??"] 1.

Uvencio Blanco: 

Hace pocas horas falleció en su hogar de los EE.UU. Pál Benkő. El gran maestro Benkő contaba con 91 años recién cumplidos.

Ajedrecista estadounidense de origen húngaro, aprendió los rudimentos del ajedrez a los 12 años, de mano de su padre iniciándose en competiciones a los 17 y ganando el nacional húngaro a los 20 años.

Jugó como primer tablero con el equipo de Hungría en la olimpiada de 1957 en Islandia, En el torneo de Portorož (Eslovenia) de 1958 se clasificó 2º-3º. Obtuvo el título de gran maestro y se le dio el derecho a participar en el torneo de candidatos de 1959 y en 1960 se hizo ciudadano de Estados Unidos.

Compartió en sexto puesto en el Torneo Interzonal de Estocolmo de 1962, pero en el Torneo Interzonal de Palma de Mallorca 1970 cedió su puesto a Bobby Fischer, para que este siguiese su camino hacia el título mundial.

Entre sus éxitos más importantes están los torneos de Novi Sad 1972 (segundo), Torremolinos 1973 (tercero). Entre 1962 y 1972 jugó en seis olimpíadas defendiendo los tableros estadounidenses.

Ha sido el jugador que más veces ha ganado el torneo U.S. Open Chess Championship, ganándolo la primera vez en 1961, tres ediciones después, tuvo una racha de granar varias ediciones continuas de 1964 al 1967, la última vez que ganó fue en 1976.

El maestro Benko fue también un gran compositor de finales, problemas y estudios de ajedrez. Fue uno de los mejores analistas de finales del mundo, pero también ha hecho importantes contribuciones a la teoría de aperturas. En los años 1970 era común referir a la apertura 1. g3 como el sistema de Benkő, con los que venció a Mijaíl Tal y a Fischer, en el torneo de candidatos de Curazao (1962). Aunque dijo que usó esta apertura para evitar las líneas más analizadas por sus oponentes

Su Rating más alto fue de 2530, mostró en su mediana edad gran interés por la escritura. Entre sus obras más conocidas están El Gambito Benkő, Lecciones de finales de partida, Laboratorio de finales de partida de Pál Benkő y Ganando con psicología en el ajedrez.

Se nos fue un grande del ajedrez. Paz a sus restos y nuestras condolencias a familiares, amigos t a la Federación de Ajedrez de los EE.UU.

The Benko Gambit with g3

("El Gambito Benko con g3") Continúa la búsqueda de una refutación del Gambito Volga y las blancas están bastante contentas si pueden lograr una ligera ventaja. Según el gran maestro islandés Henrik Danielsen, para conseguirlo las blancas deberían aceptar el gambito y continuar con el fiancheto de su alfil de rey.

Diez años de artículos escritos por Pal Benko para ChessBase (en inglés) 

Pal Benkö and the Fischer challenge
7/8/2019 – This is one of the most elegant chess problems we have ever seen. It was composed by the master, Pal Benko when he was just fifteen. Five pieces, four on their original squares, and the task is to force mate in three moves. That is quite difficult: Bobby Fischer failed to find the solution in half an hour. Can you do better – and can you find a correction for the minor dual that was found in the problem? You can win a nice prize if you do.

April 1st entertainment — the solution
4/26/2019 – As in the previous year we decided to abandon our decades-long tradition of tricking our readers with false stories on April 1st. For those who are disappointed by this decision we brought you a really fun (and fully genuine) task proposed by Pal Benko for this auspicious day. Initially there was an error in the task, but after we corrected that we received valid solutions. The best came from Mihály Berkics from Hungary, who receives a special prize.

April 1st entertainment
4/1/2019 – Last year we decided to abandon our decades-long tradition of tricking our readers with fake stories on April 1st. Instead, we said, we are going to stick to straight and truthful news. For those who are disappointed by this decision we bring you a really fun (and fully genuine) task proposed by Pal Benko for this auspicious day, and also take a look back at an historic prank we perpetrated in the past — just to prove we have not lost our sense of humour.

Problem chess with Pal Benko
2/7/2019 – Our Christmas Day problem article really made the rounds. First eminent mathematician and problemist Noam Elkies sent rapid feedback, and then one of truly great problem composers (and GM, and World Championship candidate) sent us his comments. It is none other then Pal Benko who helped convert Frederic Friedel's amateur composition into an "Excelsior", and tried himself to construct a full Excelsior (where the pawn starts with a single step). It's a lesson in problem composition.

Pal Benko celebrates his 90th birthday
7/15/2018 ? Today, July 15th, Pal Benko turns 90. As the progenitor of the Benko Gambit, chess theory will always remember him, but he also had an interesting life. He was a ladies man, spent a year and a half in a Soviet prison camp, fled from Hungary to the US, played in two Candidates tournaments, and is a renowned composer of endgame studies and problems. Frank Zellner offers more details.

Pal Benko ? eleven twins
7/7/2018 – In problem chess "twins" are two or more problems, normally composed by a single author, that are slight variations of each other. This is usually brought about by moveing pieces slightly or subtly, or adding, removing or exchanging a piece. Sometimes the position is moved to another location on the board. The solutions should be different. Now our dear and faithful friend Pal Benkö has sent us a record-setting eleven twins. Have fun solving these unique problems.

Problems of the past month – did you see the solutions?
5/6/2017 – We have published a number of problems in the past months, initially without the solutions. After some days or weeks we added the solutions on the original page, but of course many readers might have missed this. And some may have missed the problems themselves. So today we bring you a special report with the problems of Pal Benko and Miguel Illescas, with their solutions.

Pal Benko: April Swindles – unusual chess problems
4/1/2017 – Eighty-eight – that is what the first two problems in the April 1st collection symbolize. That is the age of the composer, the indefatigable Pal Benko, who sent us five very unusual positions for this auspicious day. Do not expect to fire up the positions on your computer and press Ctrl-Alt-Del for engine assistance. Today you will have to think – you know, mobilize all that grey matter. And a fair bit of humour. We wish you fun and unusual enjoyment.

Benko's Christmas problems solutions
1/25/2018 – Every year Pal Benko, grandmaster, former World Championship candidate, and one of the best problem composers in the world, sends our readers very special seasonal greetings. They come in the form of chess problems in which the pieces represent figures — this time a Christmas tree and candles. This year it was seven problems, one shaped like a tree and six like candles. Here the solutions — and some new and amusing problems to tickle your mind.

Pal Benko's Christmas problems
12/25/2017 – Every year Pal Benko, grandmaster, former World Championship candidate, and one of the best problem composers in the world, sends our readers very special seasonal greetings. They come in the form of chess problems in which the pieces represent figures – this time a Christmas tree and candles. It is the start of our Christmas puzzle week, which we bring you for the eighteenth year in succession. Prepare for puzzles that cannot be easily solved with a computer, tasks which require you to think all by yourself. And a nostalgic look to the past.

Pal Benko's Valentine Day problems
2/14/2017 – Since the days of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century Valentine's Day, February 14, has been associated with romantic love, with the presentation of flowers, confectionery and (often anonymous) greeting cards called "valentines". Our indefatigable friend, problem composer Pal Benko, sent us something different: twin problems in valentine shapes. Take a look, but be warned: they are trickier than you would expect – and definitely more romantic.

1/23/2017 – Trump, Kramnik, Botvinnik, Junge, Benko
"Don’t you think I could also be a GM if put in one or two year on chess?" Donald Trump wanted to know, when he met Pal Benko back in 1994. "You need to be born again," Benko replied. "I have never known anyone who started with chess after the age of 20 and became a grandmaster." It happened at the World Championship Candidates match, held in the Trump Plaza. In his article Pal Benko tells us some interesting things about the Botvinnik Variation.

12/25/2016 – Christmas puzzles with Pal Benko
Another year passes, and we end it with our traditional Christmas puzzles – this year for the seventeenth time. Over the holidays we try to give you something unusual: puzzles that cannot be easily solved with a computer, tasks which require you to think all by yourself. And once again, as happened frequently in the past, we received three wonderfully entertaining problems from the great composer Pal Benko, who wished us and our readers a Happy Christmas.

6/16/2016 – Can computers compose artistic problems? (2)
Earlier this week we brought you part one of Pal Benko's critique of machine composed chess problems. In part two this world famous problem composer shows us further examples and how they can be improved. He also gives us an example of composing together with a computer, "the first time in my life I did not create a chess problem fully in my own mind," and tells us why he has decided to drop out of problem competitions.

6/14/2016 – Can computers compose artistic problems? (1)
Some time ago Dr Azlan Iqbal presented a program, Chesthetica, that was composing chess problems. We published ten examples of three-movers by the machine. Now a leading expert in the subject, Pal Benko, who is one of the finest problem composers in the world, tells us what he thinks about the quality of the computer compositions – and also what are the criteria that make a chess problem valuable.

4/1/2016 – Pal Benko's April entertainment
Our loyal friend, Hungarian GM and problemist Pal Benkö, who at the age of 87 is still composing wonderfully imaginative problems and studies, has sent us four very unusual (and tricky!) puzzles to solve on this auspicious day. We present them to you without solutions, so you have a few days to try and find the hidden subtleties and traps. One thing is certain: Benko never ceases to delight.

12/30/2015 – ChessBase Christmas Puzzles 2015 (6)
This year was the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Musing over the Napoleonic invasion of Russia, three years before, Pal Benko found a well-known chess problem that reflects the retreat of the French forces and the attacks by Cossack Hussards. It was composed by Alexander Petrov in 1824, but is somewhat flawed. Our problemist friend could not resist improving on it.

7/18/2015 – Pal Benko's birthday problems
On July 14 Hungarian problem componist GM Pal Benkö turned 87. His wife Gisela is 78, his daughter Palma 45, son David 44 and his grandson Adam 12. Why are we telling you this so specifically? Because Pal is celebrating with some wonderful number problems: positions shaped like digits, to share with his family and with problem lovers all over the world. Now with solutions!

7/12/2015 – Pal Benko: Variations on a Kubbel study (2)
Our good and faithful friend, GM Pal Benko, recently explained to us why one of the most famous studies of all time, composed in 1922 by Leonid Kubbel, was not completely flawless – and indeed worthy of improvement. He showed us how the process works, and in today's second part you can watch one of the greatest composers of our generation polishing flawed studies.

6/23/2015 – Valuation: variations on a famous Kubbel study
One of the greatest chess composers in history was Leonid Ivanovich Kubbel, born in 1891 in St. Petersburg, Russia. One of the greatest contempory composers is GM Pal Benkö, born in 1928. One of the most famous studies of all time is a 1922 composition by Kubbel. It is, however, not completely flawless, and so Benkö set out to polish it. He gives us a unique insight into the process.

12/31/2014 – Happy New Year 2015 from Pal Benko
Our friend, famous chess composer GM Pal Benko, got into the New Year spirit by sending us seven little problems to solve. They are all miniatures, requiring mate in three moves. And together they spell out HNY-2015. The positions look deceptively easy, but some have very clever solutions that are not easy to find. All are cook free. With Pal we wish our readers a Happy New Year 2015!

4/4/2014 – Benko: Fun problems to celebrate April 1st
Our friend and world famous chess composer GM Pal Benko got into the spirit of the day and sent us three problems to solve. They look deceptively easy, but you must consider the day of publication and not be fooled by the guile of the composer. We will leave you to work things out for a few days, and then give you the answers which may come as a surprise to some.

3/29/2014 – Pal Benko on Richard Réti’s endgames (2)
125 years ago a boy was born in the Austro-Hungarian part of what is today Slovakia. Richard Reti was a mathematician and world class chess master. Reti was also an endgame specialist who composed some of the most original endgame studies ever devised. Some were flawed, and now, almost a century later, his compatriot GM Pal Benko provides revisions to these studies.

3/26/2014 – Pal Benko on Richard Réti’s endgames (1)
At the turn of the last century an Austro-Hungarian mathematician shook up the chess world with revolutionary new ideas ("hypermodernism"), and with some of the most original endgame studies ever devised. To celebrate his upcoming 125th birthday another great chessplayer and endgame specialist, GM Pal Benko, has sent us some examples of Reti's works.

12/23/2013 – Pal Benko: Secrets of Study Composition (2)
One of the greatest study composers – as well as a former world championship candidate – is our friend Pal Benko, who never fails to send us a special Christmas gift. This year it was an article that offers unique insight into the process of chess composition. We brought you the first part a week ago. Today it is about breaking the pin and avoiding stalemate. And there is a remarkable study for you to solve.

12/17/2013 – Pal Benko: Secrets of Study Composition (1)
There is more to chess than tournament games. The area of chess studies and problems is equally creative and breathtakingly imaginative. One of its greatest composers is grandmaster (and world championship candidate 1959 + 1962) Pal Benko. The 85-year-old author of some of the most famous studies of all time has sent us an essay on the remarkable process of chess composition.

7/15/2013 – The Life Gambit à la Benko
Pal Benko (Hungarian: Benkö Pál) is, as 99% of our readers probably know, a legendary chess grandmaster, author, and composer of endgame studies and problems. He was born on July 15 1928, which made him 85 today. Diana Mihajlova met the fit and active octogenarian, who has been a "pal" of our company for a decade, in his home town of Budapest. Here is part one of her birthday report.

7/18/2013 – The Life Gambit à la Benko – Part two
On Monday Pal Benko, legendary grandmaster, author, and problem composer, turned 85. Diana Mihajlova, who recently met with the fit and active octogenarian in his home town of Budapest, sent us a birthday report in two parts. Today we learn of Benkos escape from Communist Hungary to the US, and his relationship with Bobby Fischer. And we get to solve two highly entertaining problems.

5/20/2011 – Greetings from Pál Benkö for 25 years of ChessBase
"Congratulations to ChessBase on your 25th anniversary! Your news page is the the first thing I look at every day when I go on the Internet. You do such wonderful work. Keep up your great service for the whole chess world." Heartening words from legendary great chess player, theorist, author and problem composer – who in addition sent six anniversary puzzles for our readers.

4/24/2011 – Easter puzzles by Benko – a World Champion challenge
Pál Benkö, 82 and still going strong, is a world class grandmaster, author and problem composer. He is also a faithful friend who periodically sends us puzzles for our newspage. This time, for Easter, he has selected four problems which stumped a World Champion. It is a challenge for you to do better, and win a special prize in the process. Enjoy.

12/30/2009 – Pal Benko improves on Troitzky
In 1856 the great Sam Loyd composed a chess problem, which 75 years later inspired Alexey Troitsky, one of the greatest composers of endgame studies, to create a puzzle with a similar theme. It proved to be flawed. 75 years after Troitzky another great composer, Pal Benko, took up his problem, improved on it and submitted it for our Christmas Puzzle page.
