  FSR: With 100% certainty, GM Lahno did not play 2...Nd5??

  Phony Benoni: Surely 2...d5 3.cxd5 was played, as in game three of this match: S Agdestein vs Lahno, 2010.

However, even after that the score is obviously in error. For instance, before White's last move (assuming 2...d5 3.cxd5):

He misses the obvious 22.Qc5+. I'm pretty sure there are other errors in the score, but can't suggest a correction; gives exactly the same moves.

  FSR: <Phony Benoni> I had much the same reaction. Like you, I tried inserting 2...d5 3.cxd5 Nxd5, but even with that emendation the game score looks wrong.

  FSR: <Phony Benoni> I had much the same reaction. Like you, I tried inserting 2...d5 3.cxd5 Nxd5, but even with that emendation the game score looks wrong. Consider the position after 10...Nd5 (removing White's c-pawn and Black's d-pawn):

Surely 11.Bc5 intending to follow up with Nd6+ (or, after 11...Qc7, perhaps 12.Bd6 to annex the e-pawn) is very strong, but White didn't play it. It seems very unlikely that (a) Lahno would encourage that move (her last move was 10...Nd5, attacking the bishop) and (b) Agdestein would forbear from playing it.

  Phony Benoni: <FSR> I tried making it work by replacing 11/12...Nd5 with a move of the QN, but still couldn't make it work well.
