|Oct-05-05|| ||posoo: I have the good fortunte of being the first kibitzer on this excellent game. Alekhine's annotations are very instructive!|
|Jun-17-06|| ||LivBlockade: The tournament book, with notes by Alekhine to all of the games, is interesting. This game would make a nice game of the day or puzzle of the day. I think 22. ♗xf5 would be a Wednesday puzzle (just to see that the Bishop cannot be captured), while 20. ♕c1 would be a Sunday.|
|Aug-08-08|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Alekhine was given a <Special Brilliancy Award> for this game|

Ok by Fred Reinfeld actually.
You better not say he's no good at annotating again, <DomDaniel>@!@
|Jun-16-09|| ||WhiteRook48: sort of pun here, only it would be too lame|
|Sep-20-09|| ||WhiteRook48: how about Black's 20th|
|Sep-21-09|| ||DrCurmudgeon: <WhiteRook48>: WIll you kindly shut up? Nobody cares if you make 30,000 or 30,000,000 kibitzes when they are nothing but meaningless, vapid drivel, and are not totally idiotic only when they are totally stupid.|
|Sep-02-10|| ||anjyplayer: Alekhine annotations are very very good. Rb8 explanation is something, I cant understand till now. :PJ|
|Oct-29-10|| ||The Rocket: All of alekhines moves in this game were fritz 11 first choices starting with 15 nh4... |
Everybody says Capablanca was the talented one of the two but this is not really true, Alekhine was outstanding tactically to a level which you cant train yourself to reach.
|Oct-24-12|| ||jessicafischerqueen: More information on the nature of the prize awarded <Alekhine> for this game.|
It was in fact a "special prize" awarded for the <most brilliant king's side attack>.

|Sep-08-14|| ||ssitimefill: It is of course quite subjective, but this strikes me as one of Alekhine's most beautiful games.|
|Sep-27-14|| ||rosenthal: Winner of a Special Prize for the best king's side attack and yet not one 'check'. Unusual?|
|Sep-27-14|| ||rosenthal: D'oh! Black's fourth!|
|Sep-27-14|| ||perfessor: In the note to Black's 20th, the captures (by the B knight and W king)should be taking place on h3, not f3 which makes no sense. Not sure what it says in the book, but this must be a typo.|

Analysis position in notes after Black's 20th move.

You are correct. Alekhine Best Games - 1924-1937 (game 86) does indeed give 22...NxB+ (which is on h3).
I have the descriptive notation books - I know they brought out an algebraic version which I don't have. It is possible it is a typo copied straight from there.
The strange thing I noticed about the two descriptive books. The copy of Bells 1908-1923 edition has the name 'Alekin' on the spine. (no 'e'). The 1924-1937 Bells copy has 'Alekhine.'
I'm guessing Alekhine added the 'e' after his name when he became world champion. ;)
|Jan-30-18|| ||plang: 11 Rd1 preparing 13 d5 seems to refute the awkward 10..Rab8?!. Once Black is forced to weaken his kingside with 16..g6 he really has no way to defend.|
