  Phony Benoni: According to the "Chicago Daily News" 24 August 1926, the game actually conclude <9...Bc5+ 10.Nd4 Bxd4+> 0-1. White can save his queen with 11.Kf3, but after 11...Qf6+ Black's attack is overwhelming.

9...Bc5+ isn't that bad a move. Maybe it doesn't win the queen immediately, but the only variation where White can save her is even more hopeless.
