  Phony Benoni: Could somebody with Lahde's biography of Kashdan check on the colors in this game? (It should be Game #287). I borrowed the book to get Kashdan's games from US Opens, and don't have it now.

I'm trying to reconstruct the Championship Section. Right now Engholm has six Whites in nine games, so I'm tracking down his draws to see if the colors are wrong in any of them.

(The other two draws are not in the database as yet.)

Jan-23-15  RookFile: Whoever black was, he was pretty cold blooded. He allows a bishop sac on h7, but within a few moves it is white playing for the draw.

  Phony Benoni: <crawfb5> Thanks.
Jan-28-15  jerseybob: 27..Rd3 seems a waste of time. Better might be 27..Bb5(to stop c4) followed by Bd3, keeping the rook on the f-file and then advancing the king. With all that, black still might not win, but he's at least got a bind and some play.
