Sep-17-04  Knight13: If 42... Qh6 43 Qb7++ would follow. I've have thinked for a while. Black can't avoid mating.

  tpstar: Black has 42 ... Qb5 which loses decisive material to 43. Rxb5, then 43 ... axb5 44. Qd7 Rb8 45. Bxb8 Kxb8 46. Qd8+ & 47. Qxf8 wins everything. Black looked great until 18 ... f5 which was overly ambitious. Good game to study.

  Scardini: Alekhine's first tournament game at age 14 left a lasting impression because his opponent missed a clear win by 22... Rh5 23 Qg3 Rah8 24 h3 g5 25 Be5 g4. Years later he recalled: "This escape endowed me with a curious psychological weakness wich I had to work hard and long to eradicate - the dangerous delusion that I could always, or nearly always, conjure up some unexpected combination to extricate me from my difficulties." (All About Alekhine - Larry Evans Column).

Dec-20-10  jmboutiere: About the psychological weakness, Alekhine said that he is not sure he succeded( Panov,V.N. 300 Alekhine best games, 1957).
