Aug-24-07  Maynard5: This game features an interesting tactical battle, which is actually decided by White's strategic superiority. With 32. Rh1 followed by Qh5, White is able to use both the strong square e5 and the h-file, eventually gaining a pawn, and then simplifying into a winning endgame.

Euwe was lost a long time ago...

  plang: Alekhine had never played 3 e5 before and did not have a positive opinion of it but had faced the Winawer several times in their 1935 match and wanted to avoid any prepared improvements. 13..Qe8 was an alternative leaving the bishop a retreat square at e7. Alekhine thought that he should have taken advantage of this inaccuracy by playing 14 Na4. For the second time Euwe blocked an escape square with 15..Ra7? and for the second time Alekhine chose not to take advantage instead going for unclear complications with 18 Qxa5!?. After the weakening 20..g5? White had a clear edge; Kosten recommended instead 20..Bh5 21 21 Nc5..Bxc5 22 bxc..Bxf3 23 gxf..Ng5. After 49 Qxc4 a tricky queen endgame arose where Black had some stalemate opportunities due to the unusual kingside pawn formation; after 62 f4! that threat was eliminated and after 65 g5 White was firmly in control.

Right,

(except for the Alekhine vs Andrew Marshall, 1923 simul)

and/but he had faced it with black two times before:

Nimzowitsch vs Alekhine, 1914

A Muffang vs Alekhine, 1923 (Look who posted there first. ;) / I shall check his best games for comments)

  Mateo: I expected to read much more comments about this highly interesting game. 32...Kg8? was played to defend gainst the threat Rh7+. However, after 33.Qe5! White is winning after a forced variation. 32...Qf6 was a better attempt to hold the game, although White has an edge.
