Jul-16-07  aazqua: Where do they come up with guys like Bill Wheeler. Wonder if he was faculty at the IU math department?

  Phony Benoni: <aazqua> Probably not; the tournament book states he was from Texas. And he wasn't that bad a player, since he defeated Eugene B Meyer in this tournament. A very young Eugene Meyer, to be sure, but still...

The game is just another example of Fischer's ""Bust to the King's Gambit" busting the wrong side. It hardly seems legal.

  OBIT: The chess engines like Black's position after 7...Be7, rating it equal. Houdini liked 7...Nh5 for awhile, but changed its mind at level 22, when 8. Ne5 finally showed up in its analysis.

Evidently, Black's big mistake was 10...Qxd4. After 10...exd4, his position is okay (so sayeth the engines).
