|Oct-11-04|| ||Knight13: 9. Ba5? is a waste of move. Alekhine's gotta nice pawn structure. Good game |
|Oct-18-04|| ||chessslayer: a better move would have been o-o Iwould say any comments? |
|Oct-18-04|| ||sneaky pete: 9.Bg5! .. "El debilitamiento de la diagonal a2-g8 asi provocado puede adquirir cierta importancia sobre todo si las blancas decidieran conservar el alfil correspondiente." Dixit "Dr."A.Alekhine in the Lachaga edition of tournament book.
Means something like: the weakening of the a2-g8 diagonal is only of importance if white keeps his light squared bishop, so after 10... c6 he should have played 11.Bxa5 Qxa5+ 12.Nc3 .. etc. |
|Nov-14-04|| ||kostich in time: according to Fine, chess players liked to argue whether San Remo or Bled was Alekhines greatest acheivement...Fine said something like, if we prize scientfic accuracy, it has to be San Remo, but if we prize sheer creativity,it has to be Bled..this is an example of Alekhine at his most accurate. |
|Dec-10-05|| ||dr.noooo: right from the first almost a kings indian, and a good one.
Nobody in his right mind these days would play a Ruy the way Yates does.|
|Nov-02-06|| ||whatthefat: Yates doesn't put up a great deal of resistance, but it is just this fact that allows Alekhine to express his plan with such power. His pawn thrusts on the kingside are timed perfectly, and in the tactics that follow, he's obviously completely at home. At the finish, he was perhaps a tad inefficient by computer standards, but nonetheless a brilliant performance.|
|Nov-03-06|| ||Calli: Yates is curiously inactive, for instance 10.Be3 stops 10...c6? 11.Bb6 (and Nc7+)|
|Aug-28-08|| ||GrahamClayton: This game set the record for the latest time that both players castled (24...0-0 and 36 0-0).|
