  Phony Benoni: I think White needed a change from the Chameleon Sicilian.

  FSR: I'll bet White's face changed color after 8...f5!

A more sophisticated version of this sort of thing was seen in E Rutherford vs D Bryson, 2001, a trap that I think two people have fallen into against me in Internet blitz games. But Black has to play precisely there, because White's threat of Qh5+ gives him serious counterchances otherwise.

  Phony Benoni: The system with 2.Ne2 and 3.g3 was also seeb in Reshevsky vs J Rauch, 1939, played in the same round as this game. .So I wonder if Peckar saw Reshevsky making those moves, figured the idea had to be good, and tried it himself.

Or did Reshevsky see this game and though he'd show Fine it wasn't that easy?

Even though Reshevsky only drew, I think we can conclude that it's the player who makes the opening, not vice versa.
