Jul-29-04  Knight13: Good game.
Sep-17-04  Knight13: 25. f7+ wins two points by taking the white rook on h8. If something is wrong with it, tell me.
Sep-17-04  Knight13: I'll would suggest that 25... Qe5 was better.

  beatgiant: < 25. f7+ wins two points by taking the white rook on h8. If something is wrong with it, tell me.>

That wins only a rook for knight, but the move in the game aims to win the queen.

<I'll would suggest that 25... Qe5 was better.>

Then White would have 26. ♘f7+ which still wins the queen.

Sep-18-04  fyrwtrbrn: Well, doesnt it seem B is lost after 3)... d5 move. Alekhine finds defensive and attack move that also developes!!!! it also influences the center.just good strong understanding of opening theory and aggression. is 9)... Ne5 possible instead of f5?

25)... Qe5 26)Nf7!+ loses Q and Rfe1 coming.

Jan-17-13  JJL: 25.g3 essentially wins the Queen and mate is not far behind. As already pointed out, 25. ... Qe5 loses to 26. Nf7+ and 25. ... Qg3 is met by 26. Nf5+.
Sep-25-13  osama11282: White misses the forced mate. 26. Ne4+, leading to 26...Ke6 27.Rd6+ Ke5 28.Qc7 Rxh2+ 29.Kxh2 Qc2+ 30.Nf2 Qxf2+ 31.Rxf2 f4 32.Qxg7+ Kf5 33.g4# and checkmate.
