  Phony Benoni: <StellarKing> Losing the rook with 17.Nc2 just appears to be a foolish sacrifice; 17.Ng2 or 17.Rg1 appear better. However, losing the queen was not his choice at all, when you look at these alternatives:

(a) 24.Qxh4 Qxg2#
(b) 24.Qg1 Ng3#
(c) 24.Nxh4 Ng3+ 25.Kg1 Nxe4+
(d) 24.Qe2 Ng3+
