  Phony Benoni: An exciting game. White sacrifices a piece, eventually winding up with two pawns and a kinghunt for the exchange. In this position after 30...Kxf4:

he found an interesting way to get the queen back into play with 31.b4. Black may have been able to survive, but I suspect he overlooked 33.Qf2+.

The Black king eventually wends its way back home, so the White king goes on a little mini-walk of its own to counter Black's threats.

The finish might be: 41...Rxg5 42.Qe8+ Kg7 43.Qe7+ and 44.Qxh7#.
