Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-03-07  sanyas: This won a 'quality prize'. Alekhine criticizes 6.Nxd4, recommending 6.Ne5 instead, and 17.Bxh3, giving the alternative 17.Nc3.

  Pawn and Two: <sanyas> In the tournament book, Alekhine speaks in favor of 6.Nxd4, by stating: <There is obviously nothing better>.

A review by Fritz (16 ply) shows 6.Nxd4 and 6.Ne5 are White's best moves, with Fritz showing a slight preference for 6.Nxd4.

May-04-12  Ulhumbrus: 17 Bxh3?! draws Black's queen into White's king side.

An alternative to 19 Nc3 is 19 Nd2 so that the knight can come to f1 or f3.

19...f5 keeps White's knight out of the square e4 and so prepares the attack ...Bc5
