  Phony Benoni: Possible score error in this game, which is not be surprising. I do not now how it was possible for either player to stay awake.

After <35...a5:

there are two sequences:

CG: <36.Kd2 Ra6 37.f3 Ra8 38.Rc2 Rg6 39.Rc1 Rb8 40.Rb1 Re6 41.Rc3 g6 42.Rbc1 Rbe8 43.Rd3 Ra8 44.Ke2>

ACB, April 1923, p. 73: <36.Ke2 Ra6 37.f3 Ra8 38.Kf2 Rg6 39.Rc1 Rb8 40.Rb1 Re6 41.Rc3 g6 42.Rbc1 Rbe8 43.Rd3 Ra8 44.Ke2>

The scores are identical after 46.Kd2-e2 (CG) and 46.Kf2-e2 (ACB).

I think the ACB version actually seems more likely. 38.Rc2 and 39.Rc1 seem pretty suspicious, even ina position like this..

By the way, let me warn you about playing through a copy of this game in Descriptive Notation. It is all but impossible to keep track of the KRs and QRs.
