A Quiet Opening and a Wild Game

Hi chess friends,

Yesterday, I played a game in the Northern Virginia Chess League against an opponent with a rating right around my own. I knew that he played the Benoni frequently and I wanted no part in a theoretical fight, so I played a quiet looking sideline. Little did I know that this particular line can burst into tactical complications. One example I found after the game is this gem between chess.com vdieo author, GM Roman Dzindzichasvili and the late IM, Emory Tate. Can you find how Dzindzi won?

 

My game didn't feature anything quite so brilliant, but it did feature a mess of complications. I didn't foresee all of them, but I saw a bit more than he did, and was able to win the game.
Enjoy!
