  Phony Benoni: A case of going from the frying pan to the piƱata. The fun began after <21.Bc2>:

Black decided on some complications with <21...e5 22.dxe5 Qxh3 23.exf6 Bxf6 24.Bd6 Rfe8 25.e5>...

...and probably wished he hadn't, since after 25...Be7 26.Bxe7 his back rank problems are exposed. This called for scramble mode. First, <25...Bxc2 26.Qxc2> lured the queen off the b-file, but after <26...Qh5 27.Kg2> Black missed the saving move 27...Nc8, playable since Qxb7 is not available for White.

Instead, Black took the newly opened up flight square with <27...Bg5>, not worried about the pin after <28.Qf5 h6 29.h4 g6 30.Qh3>:

Until ne noticed the bishop can't move to safety because 31.g4 traps his queen!
