  Calli: Fritz botches the endgame 28.Kd3? [better is 28.Rd3] and 30.Rb1? loses a pawn [30.Rc1 holds]

More interesting is Alekhine's 16... bxc5! A weakness like d6 is not a weakness if it can't be exploited. That move gave AA some winning chances.

Jun-01-10  mobiegobie: Fritz expected or wished for dxc which opens the door for white tactics. Fritz seems to exchange or simplify even when it isnt better for him. 20 Qb2..white exchanges his onlt active piece. But if I was playing AA I guess the plan is trade and hope not to get mated! This is a goos game on exchanges when they are goo and when they are not.

  plang: 5..Bb4+ was a new move; 6 Nc3 would have been a more ambitious response. White invited the early exchange of minor pieces hoping to achieve a draw. 19..Qe5! led to White offering an exchange of queens and an endgame where Black's queenside initiative outweighed the weakness of the pawn on d6. The alternative 29 Kc3..Rdb8 30 Rb2 (30 Rxd6?..Rxb3+ and wins)..d5! would have been good for Black. 30 Rb1 cost White a pawn; 30 Rc1 would have maintained material equality but left White in an equally hopeless ending.
