Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-05  paladin at large: Fine position play by Tartakower with 17. f5, which drives the white bishop away and opens avenues for black's bishop, queeen and rook to threaten g2. 27. Bc6 is a fine move which maintains the pressure.

What's the losing move? White has a series of time wasting moves, e.g. 24. Qb5 25. a5 compounded by 28. Qa6 and 29. Q x a7. It is hard to understand what Alekhine thinks he is doing.

  whiteshark: <31.h3??> was the final blunder whereas <31.f3!> would have lost only a pawn, e.g. <31...Qxf3 32.Qf2 Qd5 33.a6> with compensation due to ♙a6.

  whiteshark: After <28.Rxe4 Bxb5 29.Rd4> the position is in balance.

Jun-16-09  YoungEd: With my usual "I could be wrong" caveat, perhaps 14. c4 was a mistake. The hanging pawns created thereby give Black a target, which force White to trade off his better knight and misplace the queen. Interesting finish.
