  Phony Benoni: A brilliant effort by Bohosiewicz, starting with <11.?>

Black had just played <10...Na5>, which I think was intended as a deep trap. Of course Black saw that after <11.Bxf7+ Kh8 12.Qd1> he couldn't play 12...Rxf7, but <12...Nh5>, attacking the Bf4 and threatening to saw off the protection of the other bishop, looked good.

But Bohosiewicz got brilliant with <13.Bg3 Nxg3 14.Nxg6+! hxg6 15.hxg3+ Bh6 16.Rxh6+ Kg7>

Now, Black was left in an impossible fix after <17.Rxg6+ Kxf7 18.Qh5!>

Nothing is really good here. There's 18...e6 19.Rh6+ Ke7 20.Rh7+ Kd6 21.Qc5#. Or 18...Qe8 19.Rh6+ Kg7 20.Qg5+ Kf7 21.Qg6#. Maybe best is 18...Bg4, at least distracting White's queen for a second, but after 19.Rxg4+ White is three pawns ahead and Black's king too exposed for his army to survive intact.

Roedl actually tried <18...Bf5>, figuring that after <19.Rd6+ Kg7> he might have some slim chances to fight on. But Bohosiewcz simply ignored the queen, playing <20.Qg5+ Kh8 21.Rh6+ Bh7 22.Rxh7+!>

And the vicious threat of 23.0-0-0 will force checkmate. Good stuff, and a possible Saturday/Sunday puzzle.
