  wwall: Instead of 41...d5, perhaps 41...Rc7 holds.

49...f5 looks weak. Perhaps 49...Ke6 or 49...h3 50.gxh3 Ke6.

Instead of 50.a4, perhaps better is 50.Kd5 Kf6 51.g3 hxg3 52.hxg3 and White has the extra tempo to win.

If 50...Ke6, then 51.Kb7 a5 52.Kb6 Kd5 53.Kxa5 f5 54.Kb5 and White wins. If 50...h3, then 51.gxh3 Ke6 52.Kb7 Kd6 53.Kxa7 Kc7 54.a5 wins.

  Phony Benoni: The Allentown (PA) <Morning Call>, in its weekly chess column of November 9, 1930, mentions this result and states that the game occurred in the second round of the Marshal CC Championship.

That particular tournament did have Preliminary and Finals phases; however, Santasiere did not qualify for th finals (ACB February 1931, p. 27), so this game must have been from the preliminaries in 1930..
