  Phony Benoni: I've played the wrong side of enough Sicilians like this to understand White's feelings.

You're just sort of moseying along when Black plays 13...Nb4 and you start to feel uneasy. Nothing you can put your finger on, but things are just not quite going right.

Then 15...Ng4 comes in and you being feeling more apprehensive. By the time you resort to 17.Bxe7 you're already a bit desperate, and then 17...Bg4 stabs you right in the gut.

You could struggle on for a while. After 18.Qf2 Nxc4 19.Qxb6 Nxb6 20.Bxf8 Kxf8 you aren't down that much material. But your queenisde is hanging, your knights look pathetic against Black's Godzillian bishops, and the whole position is turning to ashes in your mouth.

I'd give it up too, get a good night's sleep and just try to forget the whole sorry mess.
