  Phony Benoni: A momentous game in U.S. chess history! Prior to this, Reshevsky had not lost in U.S. Championship tournament play since round 4 of the 1936 event--a streak of 82 games.

Not only that, it's the game that eventually gave Evans the title (if Reshevsky had won this game, he'd have tied for first), making Evans the first person to beat Reshevsky for the US Title. (Previously others had won the US Title only when Reshevsky failed to defend it).

Definitely one of the most significant games in US Championship history, along with Denker-Fine 1944, Fine-Reshevsky 1940, Reshevsky-Denker 1942 and Horowitz-Denker 1942.

  GrahamClayton: 15. f5! is a key move, stopping the Black Queen from getting "onside" with 15...♕f5.
