  Phony Benoni: Flohr "misses" 29...Rxe1 with a quick mate to follow, but the score may be inaccurate. Chess Review (January 1933, p.18) gives <28.Qg3>, which makes more sense given the continuation.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Yes, the score was inaccurate. <Phony Benoni> 28.Qg3 was given in Shakhmatny Ezhogodnik, 1937, Schackvarlden, 1932, p109, American Chess Bulletin 1932, p89 and Ceskoslovensky Sach 1932, p75. Since the score has been changed here, I am assuming the original score that was posted here had given White's 28th as 28.g3.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <sachistu> I don't recall now what White's 28th was before. 365Chess has <28.g3> so that is no doubt a good bet for the incorrect move.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Chessbase also gave that move (28.g3) so that is probably the move used in the previous version until you pointed out the inaccuracy.
