  morfishine: <offramp> Thanks, now I see
Jul-03-13  EvilTwin: poor old benoni. :(
Jul-03-13  fokers13: is Qb6 the losing move?seems like it.
Jul-03-13  jrpg: I found the youtube video more enjoyable than the game. At what point did Tartakower realise he was doomed?

Seems to have been bracing enough for Tartakower. His queen was soon to be frozen off the board.

  Dionysius1: There's a potential pun between old benoni and old baloney at some stage, eh?

  Domdaniel: Tartakower didn't play very well. Was the old sage in <thyme trouble>?
Jul-03-13  tatarch: <fokers13: is Qb6 the losing move?seems like it.>

I agree. Very instructive how Saunders was able to exploit it. 18.Qe2 threatening the knight check is a handsome move.

Jul-03-13  newzild: <Domdaniel> Very good!

  kevin86: Tart's only loss in the tourney-his opponent had two draws.

You should perhaps ask that of <Phony Benoni>. ;-)
