  Phony Benoni: One of those game you lose because you have an extra pawn.

White gleefully leaves his d-pawn isolated and hanging at move 11. You never know, you know. He then uses all that good stuff like space and open lines and Central Control to set up <21.Nxf7>. Since 21...Kxf7 loses too many pawns after 22.Qxh7+ and an eventual Qxg6+ forking the ♘e4, black settles for being down the exchange and a pawn. You see, he has two Secret Weapons:

(1) He's the better player;

(2) White's extra pawn. This is the still isolated d-pawn, which even when it becomes a passer just sits there road blocking White's pieces while providing Black's comfortable vacaction spots on the light squares in its vicinity.

Surely White could have played better, but factor (1) came into play and Black won going away.
