At what point? Sorry, Fritz says no! Black is better after 8...d4 and winning after 10. Bh3? Bxh3 11. Nxh3 Qc8 (instead, 10. Bxf6 was better). Fritz confirms that GM Alburt is a strong player!

  Phony Benoni: The U.S. Open tournament bulletin has <Lonoff>, which I hope is correct--I was on the bulletin staff that year.

But I think it is. The game was played in round 4, when Alburt would have probably played Lonoff (rated 2300+) than Losoff (around 2000, if I remember correctly).
