|Feb-01-10|| ||roastedrook: 46... f3 ? I think the right move would be 46.Rxb2+ and if 47.Kxb2 then ...g7!|
|Feb-01-10|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: i certainly agree|
|Feb-23-12|| ||nummerzwei: To a certain degree, Black played a modern King's Indian. White did nothing.|
Therefore I propose as a pun
"The Inactive Irresponsibility".
|Feb-23-12|| ||Robed.Bishop: <roastedrook> Hans down, you are right.|
|Feb-01-13|| ||NM JRousselle: In the final position, White can play Rf5+ followed by Kb3 and then R captures the f pawn. Something must be wrong with the score of this game.|
|Feb-01-13|| ||thomastonk: <NM JRousselle: Something must be wrong with the score of this game.> The score of this game is consistent with Alekhine's tournament book. I agree that 46.. f3? is a big mistake, which should lose half a point. Alekhine wrote "Oder, noch einfacher, 46.... Ta2:b2+." (Or, more simply 46.. ♖xb2+.) Another winning move would have been 46.. ♗g7, of course.|
Alekhine did not report that this game had been adjourned, which could explain the result. But I have found two newspaper reports on the 12th round. One states that only two other games were adjourned, but the other one states that Johner has the advantage against Mueller (and similar statements for the other two unfinished games), and in the evening issue of that newspaper only the three missing results are reportet.
So, one possible explanation of all this could be (this is speculation nevertheless): the game had been adjourned and Mueller resigned without looking at the sealed move.

But Alekhine would not write "Oder, noch einfacher [Or, even simpler is)], 46.... Ta2:b2+." if an 46.-,f3 had given the win away.
It would be nonsense. "even simpler" means "an easier win". Not "winning, instead of only drawing".
Adjourning the game in that position? And black sealing the rock-bottom stupid move 46.-,f3??, instead of the childishly simple 46.-,Rxb2+
Forget it. The score is simply wrong somewhere.
|Nov-13-14|| ||amattar: I think 46. .. f3 ?! is ok and gives White an easy win. Let's see this line: 47. Rf5+ Ke7 48. Rxf3 Bg7 49. Rb3 Rxb2+ 50. Rxb2 Bxb2 51. Kxb2 h5! [and the h-pawn is a Queen in 4 moves] 52. Kc2 h4 53. Kd2 h3 54. Ke2 h2 55. Kf2 h1Q 0-1 |

To avoid this exchange line White has to give away his Bishop for free after black's 48. .. Bg7 the game will prolonged for a while, but eventually White will be defeated.
|Oct-07-18|| ||goser: According to the Stockfish, White could equalize in the final position: =0.00 (26 ply) 47.Rf5+ Ke8 48.Kb3 Ra6 49.Be5 Bd6 50.Bc3 Be7 51.Rxf3 c6 52.Rf5 cxd5 53.exd5 Kd7 54.Be5 Rh6 55.Rf7 Ke8 56.Rf5 Rh3+ 57.Kc4 Rh4+ 58.Kd3 Rh3+ 59.Ke4 Kd7 60.Rf7 Rh4+ 61.Kd3 Rh3+ 62.Ke4|
