Oct-30-05  who: Rauzer blows the game with 45...Rfe2 allowing a nice combination with white ending up with all his pieces on the back rank. Leaving his rook on the f-file would have left black with a major advantage/winning position. 45...Rf4 46.Qa8+ Kd7 47.Re1 Rxg4 48.hxg4 Qd5 49.Qxd5 Rxd5 50.(Fritz 2.32)

  Phony Benoni: The final position is quite surprisng if you're looking at it without Fritz:

Looks more like White should be resigning than Black, doesn't it? Yet after 46...Kd7 47.Rf1, Black has no defense to the White rook's invasion that doesn't lose major material. His own rooks can't do anything nasty because of the knight's perfect placement on g4, where it participates in the attack and covers the h2 square.
