  Phony Benoni: After <29.Rxd7>:


click for larger view

<American Chess Bulletin> (1942, p. 39) now gives <29...Bxd7> instead of our 29...Rxd7. That's a tricky piece of desperation. White's queen is attack, and 30.Qxh6 allows 30...Re1#.

Santaserie's note in ACB to 30.Qc3 was <"Both threatening and preventing mate!"> This makes sense after 29...Bxd7, but not 29....Rxd7.

However, when basing a statement on Santasiere making sense, it's good to double check. I've been trying to find another copy of the score to confirm, but without success.
