  Phony Benoni: Can 22...Nf5 possibly be sound? It certainly works quickly enough.

  IMlday: Louis Statham used to give away $300 per round for two games he liked, usually combo-bombo adventures. I think Peter made $200 for this one. Biyiasas had a good score vs Speelman (see also Speelman vs Biyiasas, 1979 ) but in 1978 Biyiasas was still Biyiasas and Speelman wasn't yet Speelman. Unfortunately Peter had an incurable degenerative eye disease so his career was rather short.

  Phony Benoni: Thanks for the response. I have to admit I didn't know about Biyiasas's eye problems. Too bad.

  IMlday: In the post-mortem I was vigourously in favour of 16.g5. Otherwise I figured that White had already gone wrong somewhere..

Peter and I shared a hotel room at the Skopje, 1972 Olympics. He was a total monomaniac, chess, 100%, all the time, zero other interests.
