  Phony Benoni: And another one, from David Kerman - Norman T. Whitaker, US Open, Milwaukee, 1953: <1.d4 d5 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 d4 4.e3 Bb4+ 5.Bd2 dxe3 6.Qa4+ Nc6 7.fxe3 Qh4+ 8.g3 Qe4 9.Bxb4 Qxh1 0-1>

Despite all his free time in the intervening years, Whitaker apparently didn't bother studying the openings.

  MissScarlett: Hilbert's <Shady Side>, p.364, gives additional moves: <11. Bd2 Qxa1 12. Nc3 Qb2 13. Nf3 Bg4 14. Qd1 O-O-O 15. Ne4 f5 0-1>. Hilbert mostly provides game sources, but not here.
