  Benzol: Apparently he didn't notice 11.♕xd4 ♘g4+ until it was too late.
Dec-15-08  YoungEd: When I was a kid, I had a chess primer by Ritson-Morry. He used many of his own games as examples; you'd think he was world championship material from the book! Funny to see him get squashed so quickly here.

  FSR: Hmm, 10.Nxc6 might've been a smidge more accurate. Better yet, 8.h3 Bg7 9.Be3.

  Phony Benoni: it was the last round. Rison-Morry was mired in last place.
