  FSR: This may well be the shortest grandmaster loss of 2014. In the final position, after 11.Qxb3 Nf3+ 12.Kd1 (12.Ke2 Nd4+) Nxf2+ 13.Ke2 (13.Kc2 Nd4+) Nd4+ 14.Kxf2 Nxb3 Black would emerge two pawns up.

I guess it could be a nice POTD Black to play and move at 9 since 10. c5 seems to me kind of forced:

  Phony Benoni: And the Lord said, "Let there be Light-Squared Bishops to cover the weaknesses created by moves like c4 and e4 and g3."

And the Lord saith unto the Light-Squared Bishops, "Be fruitful, and develop, and cover the chess board.

"For verily I say unto thee, if thou sitteth on thy fat butt all day, my servants the Black Knights shall surely frolic and leap merrily."

And the evening and the morning were the tenth day, and. lo, it was very bad for White.
