  Regicidal: Alekhine the Laser. :) 3...Ng4 looks flakey.

  GrahamClayton: It seems to me that Black's troubles started with 7...Nh4. What is the old saying about a Knight on the edge of the board? Surely 7...Ne7 would have been a better option?

  plang: 7 f5! was a new move that seems to refute 6..Bc5. 7..Ne5 8 Nxe5..Qh4+ 9 g3..Qxe4 10 Qe2 would have been winning for White. 7..Ne7 waa necessary although White is better; after 7..Nh4? 8 Ng5! White wins material, Alekhine had to avoid 19 Qf2?..Nc2+. He also had to avoid 21 Bf6?..Qe3+ 22 Kc2..Bxf6 with the threat of ..Nd4+.
