  Phony Benoni: This was played in round 13 of the tournament, and represents the sixth time Mieses had been involved in a Scandinavian. As Black, he had gone +1 -2 =1. As White, he had won against Marshall back in round 1.

This seems to lead to two conclusions: (1) Mieses was well versed in both sides of the Scandinavian; (2) The opening wasn't that good for Black, at least not in 1907.

Just for the record, Mieses tried the Scandinavian as Black twice more, and lost both games. Finally, in an ironic twist, the two players he beat with White met in round 20, Marshall played it--and Tartakower won with White.

Mar-13-09  YoungEd: Mieses was pretty loyal to the Scandinavian, and it's just like Tartakower to try it against him. <AlexanderMorphy" is right that Black gets too greedy, but he had to try something--by move 10 he's already a pawn minus with a worse position. p.s. thanks for the history, <PB>.
