  profK: All wraped up with a semi swindle. The knight on g4 and the B on b2 get a bit too dangerous.

  Phony Benoni: Turns out it's not a problem after all.

"American Chess Bulletin" (April 1914,p. 90) published a score of this game which omitted the move <12...Bb6 13.h4>. This leads to a problem when White plays 19.Nh6+ in this position:

As black can safely paly 19...gxh6 20.Qg3+ Qg5, since White's pawn is not on h4.

The ACB version probably comes from the"Brooklyn Daily Eagle" of July 17, 1913. However, the "Los Angels Times Times" (July 15, 1913, but slightly garbled) and "San Francisco Call" (July 20, 1913) both have the version on this page. Considering the variation given earlier, it is almost sure to be right.

  fredthebear: "Stasch" is apparently short for Stanis?aw (Polish ?stan?swaf) or Stanislaus. Then I find that he actually has a personal Wikipedia page, which says as much:
