  Phony Benoni: <Final Position after 54.Bd3>

Black is quite lost here, but there is a tiny change for a Reti Swindle which he might as well as tried by playing <54...Kc5>. Now White wins easily enough with 55.Ba6 (and 56.Bb7) or even 55.Bxf5, but if he should happen to be a bit impatient with <55.a8Q Bxa8 56.Kxa8 Kd4!>

Draw! Black will be able to capture the White pawns, and if <57.Bxf5> Black just ignores it with <57...Ke3!>.
