  Phony Benoni: After <47...Kg6>


click for larger view

White had a nice selection of winning moves, one of the more delectable ideas being <48.d7 Rh8 49.Qc6+ Kg7 50.Qf6+ Kxf6 51.d8Q+>, with a whole barn load of extra material in the lines where he doesn't mate black.

Instead, he found possibly the worst move around with <48.Qd2>

When <48...Rh8> actually forced mate in part because White's queen blocked d2. White indulged in some spite, but it was all over.

Rather a case of E-I-E-UH-OH!
