  Phony Benoni: Sometimes, trying to make the best out of a bad situaion just sinks you deeper in the morass. Case in point, after 16.Be3:

<16...Nxf4? 17.Bxf4 Qxf4 18.Nd5> lost the exchange, as Black could not stop the fork on c7. He decided to go for rapid mobilization of his remaining pieces.

But after <18...Qe5 19.Nxc7 d5 20.Nxe8 Bc5+ 21.Nf2>, suddenly there were new problems. 21...Rxe8 22.exd5 would win a piece, so Black tried <21...d4>. After all, the knight was still trapped.

But after <22.Nd3> the overloaded queen was unable to keep the knight under lock and key while guarding the bishop. This meant he would be a full rook down, and after some more slogging he gave it up.

"Waist deep in the Big Muddy..."
