  Gypsy: Charming little pawn endgame.
Oct-22-04  chessslayer: yes it is very good game>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Apr-12-05  chess man: 20.Ne6 beautiful move.

  Gypsy: <21...h6> If 21...g6, then 22.Rxh7! Qxe6 23.Qh4 Qe4+ 25.QxQ RxQ 26.Rdh1... 1-0.
Mar-16-07  cizio2: Nice way to enter a nice won endgame!
Apr-28-08  KingG: Kasparov points out that after 19.Qxe4, we have an almost identical position to the one after move 20 in Dus Chotimirsky vs Rubinstein, 1907, with colours reversed. The only difference being the rook is on a1 instead of c1.

Apr-29-08  Pawnkeeper: It seems to me instead of 21....h6 it would be better if 21....QxN then 22.Qxh7 Kf8 23.Qh8+ Ke7 24.Qxg7 would be better for black, not good but better. It was a great game anyway.
Apr-30-08  Pawnkeeper: To add to my above comment I believe white still wins. Depending on blacks move, white's queen has d4 or c3 then c5 or b4. Whites rook has h8 if needed or h6. After trading down white has a won end game.
Apr-30-08  Pawnkeeper: A nicely won end game I might add!
May-22-09  WhiteRook48: 20 Ne6!!
Aug-15-10  Sourav: The third move by white was actually Nc3 and not Nf3. Also, move 5 was Nf3 and move 6 was e3. Please refer to the book 'My Best Games of Chess' Volume 1 by Alekhine and make corrections accordingly.
Jul-31-14 A "trebuchet" rotated 90 degrees! Very neat! I'll have to remember that.
Aug-01-14  Tullius: Kalendovsky & Fiala : "Complete Games of Alekhine", Vol.1, p.76 confirm the remarks by <Sourav>. Their source is Gebhardt R. et al.: "XVII Kongress des Deutschen Schachbundes", e.V.Hamburg 1910. Coburg 1911.
Dec-20-15  ToTheDeath: Brilliant game from start to finish. Ne6! refutes Black's idea completely and forces a won endgame. Alekhine's technique is god like, especially seeing Re5!
