  Phony Benoni: There is a question about the score of this game. After <47...Kd5>:

The New York Sun of November 30 gives the following continuation:

48 Q-K2 K-Q3
49 K-Kt2 R-B2
50 K-Kt R-B
51 Q-K2 Drawn

Obviously, White couldn't have played Q-K2 twice without another intervening queen move. The New York Recorder for December 30 followed this sequence, but omitted 51.Q-K2.

Urcan, in "Adolf Albin in America", p.211-212, omits the 48th move, giving a 50-move game, and cites "Delmar Scrapbook" as his source. I've accepted this for the score here. I'm not really satisfied by it, but have nothing better to suggest.
