Oct-12-12  wildrookie: Be2 would have been a much more elegant mate here IMO.

  Phony Benoni: <master of defence> The event is given as <Theme2 corr>, which indicates that the game was played in a correspondence tournament using a specified, or "thematic" opening. This seems to have been the "Gibbins-Weidenhagen Gambit", or GWG. We have quite a few games from this event in the database.

However, I suspect that only the moves <1.d4 Nf6 2.g4> were specified. Drueke gets all the blame for 4...Nxf2 himself.

It's not such a ridiculous idea. After 5...dxe4, Black has three pawns for the piece with White's king stuck in the center and exposed. If Black can survive for the next few moves, it could be an interesting game. However, Drueke could not accomplish that either here or in R Goldt vs V Drueke, 1982.
