  Phony Benoni: The was the fourth and deciding game of the play-off match to decide the tie following six games in a double-round playoff among the four players who tied for first in an 19-player round robin. That's 28 games in sixteen days, during August in Memphis, Tennessee.

Looks like poor Wolbrecht's brain just finally gave out. Jefferson may not have been in much better shape, but at least he was playing in his home town, and didn't have to put up with the hotel food.

  Phony Benoni: <Morphized> That's surely right. "American Chess Bulletin", Septebmer 1914, p.204, gives <17...Bh5>. I probably submitted this game based on ACB, and my records have 17...Bh5, so I don't know what happened. But I must have goofed somehow, and will try to get it correct now.
