Feb-11-02  knight: Alekhine opens up the game with a couple of pawn sacrifices, he brings all of his pieces into good posts and then sacrifices two pieces against the insufficiently defended black king, forcing checkmate.
May-29-03  chimusan: just browsing through center game opening and noticed that alekhine played it quite often

anyways the move i'm looking at is 20...Ne2+
It took me awhile to figure out that Alekhine did not wisely do 21. Rxe2 because 21...Bxf2+!! which nabs the queen for black... 20... Ne2+ was black's last resort and of course Alekhine would never fall for such nonsense

overall though, this game is full of fun and nice sacs by alekhine

Sep-06-04  Impala03: Good game.... I guess. Further examination shows that Alekhine missed the easy 11.) swap of ladies followed by the Nd5 which either wins the piece or forks the K & R... However, neat mate. Its the W that counts
