  Phony Benoni: 28...Nd2+ is indeed bad, but the tournament situation explains a lot. This was the penultimate round, and Lilienthal trailed Thomas, the tournament leader, by a full point. A win was absolutely necessary, and he simply overreached.
Apr-21-09  Marmot PFL: This line is the reason Bob Ciaffone won't play the French.

  Jonathan Sarfati: That also explains why GAT played the boring exchange, and had a somewhat worse position before Black blundered (the ♘ was better than the ♗ and his ♖ was more active too).
