  Phony Benoni: The game is exciting enough when you look at it, but the circumstances made it incredible.

It was played in round 11 of a 12-round U.S. Open. Korchnoi and Christiansen were leading the field with 9 points, followed by three players with 8.

The game was played in a small room reserved for the top boards which had no room for spectator seating. As the game went on, more players kept crowding around the table and demonstration board, even standing on chairs to see what was going on. It was probably the most electric atmosphere I've even seen at a tournament.

None of the 8s could win, so Korchnoi and Christiansen kept their lead and clinched a tie for first by both winning in the last round.
