  GrahamClayton: I was intrigued by the reference to the "Dimock Theme Tournament". A Google search found a reference to the 1924 Dimock tournament:

Was there a Dimock tournament in 1925?

  kenilworthian: There were a number of theme tournaments at the Marshall CC from 1921-1926 sponsored by Dimock and others (including Alrick Man). This Sicilian wing gambit was among them.

  Phony Benoni: H.R. Bigelow's column in the <New York Evening Post> of June 2, 1926, published most of this game along with another between Leo Shodlovsky and Fred Reinfeld. The column makes it seem they were from the same tournament, but the Reinfeld game was an Evans Gambit. Different sections, perhaps? Certainly at that time the 16-year-old Reinfeld was not in the same class as Pinkus and Santasiere.

  Phony Benoni:

This indicates that the 1926 Dimock tournament was a two-section event held at the Marshall Chess Club, with Reinfeld playing in the second section. Only two openings were allowed: the Sicilian Wing Gambit seen in this game and a line in the Evans Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.b4 Bxb4 5.0-0).

  Fabrizio1951: I think another interesting line is 7. Nb5 Bxf3 8.Qxf3 Qe5+ 9.Be2 Qxa1 10. 0-0 and white has a strong attack.
