  Chessical: <Bg5> seems more of a thoughtless "developing" move than part of a strategic plan. It would have then been better to retreat the attacked B back to <e3> rather than to try to save a tempo as by move 9 Miseses is in serious trouble on his K-side.

Mieses' radical reaction of <Nbd2> trying to stir up complications simply allows Alekhine to demonstrate his tactical talent.

Thus, <17...R(a)d8!> and if <18. Qxd8> Be3+ 19. Kb1 Rxd8 20. Rxd8+ Kh7 21. Bc4 Bxf3

<22... Rd8> leaves White compleltly lost, <23. Qc2> Bxa2 24. b4 Bb3 25. Ne1 Be3+ 26. Kb2 Qxf1 27. Bxf1 Bxc2 28. Nxc2 Bf2

  Calli: The position after nine moves is a Scotch game by transposition and was already played in C F Schultz vs Carls, 1900 Why Mieses who was an expert in this opening played it this way is hard to fathom.
