|Mar-26-09|| ||Lutwidge: If there were a sound to accompany Black's last move, I imagine it to be:|
|Mar-26-09|| ||tamar: Followed by pen noises, chair sliding back and Brinckmann silently leaving the playing area.|
|Mar-26-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: This is just ridiculously brilliant.|
|May-04-09|| ||Trigonometrist: Stupendously brilliant.|
|May-04-09|| ||Calli: Better is 25...Rh1+ and mate in 5. Alekhine's continuation only wins a piece.|
|May-04-09|| ||Gilmoy: White's h1-problem was so unsolvable that Black has several wins by force. Black has two mates at h2/h1, and White's Bg2 can stop only one of them.|
a) 25..Rh1+ 26.Bxh1 Rxh1+ <like a two-Rook Damiano> and either 27.Kxh1 Qh5+ 28.Kg1 Qh2+ 29.Kf1 Qh1# or 27.Kg2 Rh2+ 28.Kg1 (28.Kf1? Rxf2+) Qh5.
b) 25..Qh5 26.Qxg4 Qh1+ <a 21-point sac!! drop a piece, ignore his hanging Q, sac your own Q> 27.Bxh1 Rxh1+ 28.Kg2 R8h2#.
<Calli: Alekhine's continuation only wins a piece.> No, it also mates, by destroying the Bg2. Black threatens 26..Rh1+ and a triangle mate, so the Q cannot be declined. Then Black ends up with a pawn or bishop on f3, which controls e2/g2, and White's K can't escape.
|May-04-09|| ||Calli: <Gilroy> There is no mate in the game continuation because Nd5+ allows White to capture the g2 pawn: 26.Qxf3 exf3 27.Nd5+ Bxd5 28.cxd5 fxg2 29.Kxg2 Rh2+ 30.Kf3|
|May-04-09|| ||ToTheDeath: All true <Calli>- maybe he was playing to the crowd?|
|May-04-09|| ||Calli: Yes, I think he saw a visually pleasing and unusual move and wanted to show off. Probably even saw the other more routine combos. Crowd pleasing? I think "Triberg 1921" was held at Bogoljubow's house! No prize money, just a little practice for Alekhine who recently arrived from Russia and was staying with Bogo.|
|Jul-27-11|| ||perfidious: This game provides another exploitation of solid, yet passive opening and middlegame play by the dynamic, concrete approach of Alekhine, though what <Calli> states is correct-the simple 25....Rh1+ forces the win, pretty as Black's final blow is.|
|Jul-27-11|| ||aliejin: Spielman said that he could to finish favorable positions , as well as Alekhine |
What he found very difficult,
was to reach these farorable positions ...
