  Phony Benoni: I think it was Reti who commented that, in Alekhine's combinations, it was the final move that took your breath away. I'm finding also that often it's a quiet move after the flashy sacrifice which makes the whole thing work.

Here 22.Nh7 receives all the press, but it's 23.fxe5 that gets the job done.

I kind of see your point (beneath your flaming red afro :-) but it's all part of the same combination. I mean if he hadn't already foreseen 23.fxe5 then 22. Nh7 would have just been a blunder
