  GrahamClayton: <RookFile>Should he have preferred 10....♘h4?

10...♘h4 11.♕g4 ♗e7 12.♕xg7 ♖f8 13.♕xh7 looks pretty good for White.

  FSR: <GrahamClayton> 11...Nf5! and "Black is OK!" Sort of. At least it beats the game continuation.

  Phony Benoni: If Black is OK after 11...Nf5, I don't want to be OK:

Simply 12.Nb5 looks like a crush. Even without a sarcastic 12.g4 thrown in first.

Note, by the way, that the decisive blow is made with the already developed piece. As A. J. Dirp always said: "Never move a piece twice before you have moved it once."

  FSR: <Phony Benoni> I was talking about in <Graham Clayton>'s line: 10...Nh4 11.Qg4 and now I'm suggesting 11...Nf5.

  Phony Benoni: <FSR> Oh. In that case you're right that the line is better than the game, but I still have faith in White's strategy--especially since the game was played at the Marshall Chess Club.
