Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-05  Jaymthegenius: What?! I dismissed this 2.e4 as very unsound (though as a from gambit player I considered this in one of my internet games, but played 2.b3 instead) As the knight is misplaced square after fxe4. Takes aim at e4, but 3.Ng5,d5 4.c4 and black can pull off a draw or win with accurate defense.

  Karpova: who is probably right - alekhine or jaymthegenius?
very hard to decide...
Apr-11-05  Abaduba: rather than comparing analysts, let's compare lines: Jaym's 4. c4 looks good for Black, but Alekhine suggested 4. e3 de 5. Bxe4 If ...Nf6} then 6. Bxh7 and Black is already lost due to the Queen check on h5. If ...Qd6, as my computer suggests, then {6. Nxh7 Qe5+ 7. Qe2 Qxe2+ 8. Kxe2] and Black has no good answer to the threat of Bg6+ and Nxf6.
Feb-03-09  devioustalfan: after fxe4, Ng5 gives a Liver like position which I sould glady accept after ...e6 Nf7 Qe7 Nxh8, so what , I'm up in development!!!
Feb-03-09  MaxxLange: It actually isn't wise to take Alekhine's remarks about openings at face value; he could be very dogmatic.
Feb-03-09  AnalyzeThis: I recall that Alekhine annotated a game of Ed Lasker versus Capablanca, which opened 1. e4 g6, and his notes would have us believe that Lasker had a forced win with 2. d4.

Instead of relying on your faulty recollection, you could have searched for the annotations which can easily be found in the New York 1924 tournament book. Alyekhin did write that "from the present-day theoretical standpoint this move [1...g6] cannot be regarded as wholly valid", but in the next note only pointed out some advantageous possibilities after 2.d4. Nothing even close to a "forced win".
