  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).
Feb-18-05  Granite: Looking at the final position you'd never guess black castled king-side LOL.
Nov-27-09  asianmonkey147: haha. good one granite!
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).
May-18-12  LoveThatJoker: Tremendous game from young Alekhine here!


Mar-22-17  cwcarlson: 21.h3 Nf6 22.Qf2 is even. Black is winning after 21.Rde1 Nf6 22.Qg5 Nh5!
