  beenthere240: Refusing the bishop sacrifice with 25 Kh1 avoided a huge attack but gave white a lost game.

  Phony Benoni: Annotating the game in <Chess Review> (May 1933, p. 8), Horowitz singled out 12...Qc8! as a strong move. This induced White to play 13.Bf1, giving Black to establish a knight on e4. After that White could never play e3-e4 to free his pieces, and Black had all the play.
