  Phony Benoni: Somewhat reminiscent of the famous game Alekhine vs Yates, 1923, showing what damage a queen and bishop can inflict once they get behind enemy lines.

Of course the bishop never actually got there, but judging from its activity the rest of the game we should probably be amazed it played a part at all.
