  Phony Benoni: 22...exf4 probably seemed like a good idea at the time, but he had to answer 23.Rxe7 with 23...Qxe7. The kingside attack is funny, since White's pieces are all on the queenside.

  yiotta: Sven Almgren was a gardener by profession, a poet, and a composer of chess problems. A nice man who, though not a master, could take a notable scalp or two.

  yiotta: Or maybe he was a master. Replaying this again, his patient acquisition of squares was quite impressive.
