  Phony Benoni: An interesting game, even if it doesn't add much to our theoretical knowledge of the Polish. Black's ♗ sacrifice is certainly effective, but you have to wonder if it was a bit of desperation with his queen so awkwardly placed.

Wolbrecht went on to win the tournament ahead of two-time champion Uedemann, so this may have been a critical game.

  Phony Benoni: It was, it was. Wolbrecht had to win to be part of a three-way tie for first and get into a playoff. In the playoff he then tied again with Magnus Smith before winning a second playoff to finally take the title. Clutch player!
