  Phony Benoni: When you play through the first 13 moves of this game, you get the impression that Black might have been just a bit more efficient with his knights.

15 moves later, White's lordly center is gone and he's fighting for survival.

Long live hypermodernism!

  IMlday: Hawkes-Spraggett '84 had 7.f3 f5 8.h4 with Black escaping difficulties in the middlegame by cunningly offering a draw. 10.Nce2 is Smyslov-Bronstein given in Smyslov's game collection. 16.Ne2?! is needlessly committing while 16.h4! is thematic for the ♙s and makes the h1♖ happily developed. Gambitty play might go 16.h4 Be6 17.h5 0-0 18.Nd5 gxh5 19.Nh3 h6 20.Ne3 Ng6 21.exf5 Bxf5 22.Nxf5 Rxf5 23.Be4 Rf6 24.Qd1 d5 25.Bxg6 Rxg6 26.Qxh5 Re6+ 27.Kd1 Qd7 28.Kc2 with White's ♔ far safer than Black's. Missing 16.h4! is thematically crunched when Black plays 25..Qh4 taking the square himself. Spraggett at his peak!
