Sep-27-05  Craigokat: Should not move 12 be h4 instead of f4? and 24 would then be hg etc
Dec-10-05  aw1988: Yes, I honestly don't know what f4 was about. It concedes... well, not everything, but a lot. Furthermore, what's wrong with Qxe3?
Feb-25-06  chessnewbie: What's wrong with 12....Qxe3?
Feb-25-06  dakgootje: white plays its own attack? =P

btw Fritz8 doesnt like 12. f4 either and considers 12. ...Qxe3 and 12. ...Nb6 about equal

Mar-12-09  WhiteRook48: 17 Kf1 looks a bit puzzling
Sep-18-09  WhiteRook48: 2 Bg5!!

  Phony Benoni: <12.f4> is almost surely wrong. Not only does it allow ...Qxe3+ at once, the e-pawn also hangs some moves later to the rook.

The score available in Olimpbase gives 12.h4, as well as some other differences.

Apr-18-12  LoveThatJoker: Glad to see that the whole 12. f4 thing was corrected. Great game by Trompowsky!
