  Phony Benoni: <"In this Detroit game I played Whitaker in the 12th or 13th round. Tensions were mounting, Torre and Reshevsky were much interested, as Whitaker had not lost a game. Numerous behind-the-scenes prizes were being offered by individuals to the first man to beat Whitaker. I hit a nice little jack-pot in winning this game. I am still using in major tournaments the set of men I won that day."> -- Robert Scrivener, Tennessee Chess News, May 1969.

  Phony Benoni: Scrivener also played Whitaker at the 1929 Western tournament at St. Louis and, despite finishing near the bottom, knocked him out of first place with a later round win.
