  Phony Benoni: A man of mystery. He comes out of nowhere to finish second in the 1929 Western Championship, ahead of players like Herman Steiner, Norman T. Whitaker and Samuel Factor. He then shows up on the Olympiad team at Hamburg 1930 (scoring 38% on the bottom board).

He finishes 4th at the 1931 Western in Tulsa, OK, wins the St. Louis championship in 1932 with 8.5/9--and disappears at the age of 26.

Jul-14-13  BlackFront: He should have disappeared in 1929 right after beating the world champion. Mission accomplished. Go to Hollywood, become a film star.
