|Apr-02-05|| ||popski: Huh, 24.♕d1 is a killer move! |
|Apr-29-05|| ||fgh: Wow, 24. Qd1!!.|
|Jun-05-05|| ||aw1988: Wow, awesome move. I mean, so unexpected (prevents Rf1 mate for those who don't see it).|
|Apr-26-10|| ||birthtimes: Alekhine probably didn't calculate 21.Nh6+!|
|Feb-18-13|| ||SaVVy66: @Birthtime 22 Nh6 would be self destruct as if Nh6+ Kh8 Qg1+Rxg1 Nf6 + Qxf6 even if rook retakes queen white will lose the lead of knight over black..|
|Feb-18-13|| ||goldenbear: <SaVVy66> It looks to me like 22.Nh6++ delivers mate... 22.Nh6++ Kh8 23.Rc1 and now either 23.Qxd6 Qg8+ with mate or 23.Qxc1+ 24.Bxc1 gxh6 25.Rd7 with a quick mate.|
|Mar-06-13|| ||SaVVy66: <goldenbear> you mean 21.Nh6 Kh8 22.Rd1(rc1 isnt legal move)Rooks on 8th rank have potential to block that attack and and king is not under check that moment so he can retake knight at any time|
|Mar-07-13|| ||goldenbear: <SaVVy66> No, I meant exactly what I said (22.Nh6+ Kh8 23.Rc1 wins), and I'm right. (In my last variation, I think 25.Bxh6 is quicker than 25.Rd7 but that's just splitting hairs.) As for 21.Nh6+!, that wins too... 21.Kh8 22.Nxg4 or 21.gxh6 22.Qb3+ Be6(Re6) 23.Rxe6 or else 21.gxh6 22.Qb3+ Kg7 23.Bf6+ Kg6 and now 24.Bxe5+ wins the queen or else mates: 24.Kg5 25.Qe3+ Kh5 26.Qxh6#.|
|Jul-21-13|| ||phil6875: <birthtimes> was correct, Alekhine did miss the very strong 21. Nh6+ with the following possible line 21...Kh8 22. Rd8 Qb6+ 23. Kh1 Raxd8 24. Bxd8 Qxd8 25. Nf7+ Kg8 26. Nxd8 h6 |
<SaVVy66> How is that self destruct? Where does Qg1+ come from?
<goldenbear> In your line why would Black make either of those moves? Surely 23...Rf8 is the only move, meaning no mate.
