  Phony Benoni: <Tabanus> Glad you caught there were two Brodersens.

My game with B.F. was from Chicago 1989. Definitely an older man, played better than his rating. There is a crosstable for the event online: "Illinois Chess Bulletin", September/October 1989, p.8-10.

Brodersen is #398, state given as AZ.

  Tabanus: The evidence is a bit thin, but there is no other usable candidate with the initials "B. F."
