  Phony Benoni: You know, sometime I get the feeling Delmar played Weird Stuff just to have something to do. Dealing with problems you can see is far more interesting than trying to deal with problems you can't see.
Nov-21-19  Straclonoor: Pawn ending is in favor for black.

  GrahamClayton: 2. Ba6 is an interesting choice - Black gets doubled pawns but the bishop is exchanged straight away for a piece on the edge of the board.
