  Phony Benoni: Played in a ten game exhibition of blindfold rapid transit given by Fine at the Manhattan Chess Club on January 22, 1945. The games were played consecutively, not simultaneously.

Fine won nine games, conceding a draw to Edward S Jackson. . Other opponents, in the order in which they faced Fine, were Cornel Tanasy, Julius Hallgarten, Raoul Echeverria, Robert Byrne, Max Pavey, W Shipman vs Fine, 1945, George Kramer, Donald Byrne, and Hermann Helms ( the game on this page.)

Since Fine had Black in at least one game, there may have been color alternation.


<Cehss Review>, February 1945, p. 21; March 1945, p.8-0.
