  Phony Benoni: Almost a Centennial Game, played 100 years ago yesterday.
Feb-23-18  morfishine: I don't know what to make of this game, it looks like a game of like-pole-magnets: the pieces seem to repel each other


Feb-23-18  bikfoot: I believe that 28.Bxd7 wins in all variations, as Black's attack is not strong enough.
Feb-23-18  Ironmanth: Crazy, crazy game! Must have been amazing to have watched this back in the day.

  Breunor: Bikfoot, Stockfish has 28 Bxd7 at -0.37:

28. Re1ch 29 Kf2 Re7 30 Bxf5 Nxf5 31 Qc4 Nd6 32 Bxd6 cxd6 33 a4 Ra8 etc.

28 Rxe2 is listed as dead even, 0.00.

The computer doesn't like 29 Kf2, evaluated at -1.29; instead it prefers Re1 (-0.39).

Stockfish has 31 .... Bf5 As a mistake, -0.4; instead Qa7 wins (-4.05).

White should play 32 Bc6 (-0.4) but the actual Re2 is -1.29.

Black should play Bd3, but the actual Nc4 is -0.29.

33 White should play Bb3, but the actual g3 is -2.43

Black again should play Qa7, but the actual Bd3 is -1.67.

White should play 34 Bb5, but the actual Re1 is -6.81.

Black then finds the crushing Qa7.
