Position after 32 ♖ee6:

The Black f6-pawn/square is clearly feeling the heat from the coordination of five count'em five White pieces (White's e6-rook, d6-rook, b2-queen, g4-knight, and h4-bishop) and if it falls the Black h8-king could go next.

  Phony Benoni: Was Black actually Gedeon Barcza ? We have several of his games from Budapest 1952, but no others by Barczay--who would have been only 16 at the time.
Feb-22-08  nescio: <Phony Benoni> As usual you're right on both assumptions. From the NewInChess database:

[Event "Budapest"]
[Site ""]
[Date "1952.??.??"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Petrosian, Tigran Vartanovich"]
[Black "Barcza, Gedeon"]
[Result "1-0"]
[NIC "RE 24.8"]
[ECO "A08"]
[PlyCount "91"]

1. Nf3 Nf6 2. g3 d5 3. Bg2 c5 4. d3 etc.

And Barczay didn't play in Budapest. That is, he will have, but not in this particular tournament:

  Phony Benoni: <nescio> Thanks for the confirmation. I've submitted a correction.
Feb-22-08  nescio: <Phony Benoni> Good. Let's check back in a year or two. There are a lot of games missing from this interesting tournament, especially by the non-Soviet participants. I'll see what I can do about that.

  ray keene: black was certainly barcza not barczay

easy mistake to make

  zydeco: Petrosian had an off tournament but made up for it with wins in the last two rounds. Barcza would have been an interesting opponent for Petrosian stylistically.
