Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-06-04  GoodKnight: 6. Bxf7+ wins the pawn and stops the king from castling.
Sep-06-04  Marvol: I guess it also eliminates white's advantage in development, the mean reason why white is playing this opening to begin with.
Feb-24-05  ArturoRivera: but it prevents the king to castle, the black king in the center is more important than a piece in developement, i agree that bxf7+ was much better, material remains equal with whith white in a crushing position, dont know why didnt alekhine didnt played it, perhaps he blitzed the opening.
Oct-14-10  pom nasayao: there is no answer to White's 31. Ng5+ and 32. Re8 mate. There are intervening moves for Black though, like 30. . Rg2+ 31. Kxg2 g5; 32. f5. it will end the same way.
Nov-07-10  Ychromosome: Even if black sacs the exchange with 30...Ra5 31.Ng5+ Rxg5 32.fxg5 white's h-pawn is too dangerous.
Mar-07-16  happyjuggler0: <it prevents the king to castle, the black king in the center is more important than a piece in developement>
