  elahevad: I do a search thinking, you know, I bet nobody has lost as white against the Caro Kann in 10 moves, this won't turn up anything...

I was wrong again!

  Phony Benoni: <elahevad> It's worse than you think. White actually resigned after move 9!

In addition, the event and location are wrong. The game was played in the 1946 US Open in Pittsburgh, in the Premier Reserves final section. Adams was leading the section at the time, -point ahead of Kramer, but faded somewhat after this debacle.
