Jun-23-03  Reverser: Very funny game, black playing dumb moves all the way to the mate. I have some questions though what is the continuation after 14. Bh6 gxh6 ? from what i've got it must be something like 15. Qg3+ Bg5 and then what? after 16. hxg5 Qxg5+ and then after the queen exchange the attack seems pretty over and black has one more pawn... maybe there's something better with 16. f4 first. Or maybe i miss something obvious.
Jun-23-03  Jonber: 14...gxh6 15.Qxh6 Bg5+ 16.hxg5 Nf5 17.Bxf5 Qxg5+ 18.Qxg5+ Kh8 19.Qg7#
Jun-23-03  Reverser: of course Qxh6,i knew i missed something obvious. Thanks jonber.
Jun-23-03  Jonber: No problem, my pleasure. :-)
Jan-13-07  Paulvandyk: In the final position, if 17 ... Kxh7 18 Nf6+ Kg6 19 Rh6#. If instead 17 ... Kh8 18 Nf6 (with the threat of 19 Bf5+ Nh5 20 Rxh5+ Kg7 21 Rh7#). If black tries to defend against this threat with 18 ... Nxf6, 19 gxf6 and the knight is lost because if 19 ... Ne8 20 Bg8+ Kxg8 21 Qg5+ Ng7 22 Qxg7#.

So, at the very least it seems that white will win a piece while maintaining a strong attack.

A good reason for this might be due to the fact this game was part of <Alekhine's> first simultaneous exhibition: March 4th, 1910 in Moscow.

<Alekhine> finished +15 =6 -1

Game published in <Shakhmatnoe Obozrenie> 1910, p. 30
