Mar-25-04  Helloween: 31.Bxe2 is met by a mate in 4: 31...Nh6+ 32.Kg5 Bd8+ 33.Kxh6 Rh3+ 34.Bh5 Rxh5#
Jul-29-04  chess4games: Black is a piece up. White resigned. Good game.
Mar-13-05  Bishops r power: Great game, we should all use the Philidor defence once in a while to confuse our opponents, and also to experience fascinatig stuff!
Jan-17-10  Gambit All: Shulga seems to lose all interest in the game and just putters around, playing from move to move beginning on move 17.
Jun-10-10  timothee3331: 23...Bd3! is a very subtle move because 24.Rd1 Be4! 25.Rf1 Rd1!!. I once read in "Think like a GM" that Korchnoi was always rushing onto his opponent, but never missing an opportunity. I feel pretty much the same about this game of Alekhine.
Oct-20-15  auroraspitfire: Was Alekhine a Nazi sympathizer?
