|Feb-11-04|| ||gentle75: 10... dxe4 !
A move to remember. I have tested some computer programs to find it - Rebel Decade 3.0 and Chessmaster 7000. They can't.
|Feb-11-04|| ||Whitehat1963: What do they give as alternatives? 10 ...Bxe4? |
|Jul-16-04|| ||zb2cr: After 20 Bc1, Nxe2+. Now two variations:
(a) 21 Kg2 (21 Kf2?, Rh2#!), Bh3+; 22 Kf2 (22 Kh2, Bxf1#), Nxc1; 23 Rxc1, Bxf1. In this line if 23 Rh1, Nd3+ wins the exchange anyway. So Black ends the variation a Rook up.
(b) 21 Rxe2, Qh5; 22 Kf2 (only way to defend both the mate threat and the Rook), Qh2+; 23 Ke3, Qxg3+; 24 Kd2, Qxb3; 25 axb3, O-O-O and White is down by 2 passed Pawns.
After 20 Rf2, Nh3+ wins the exchange.
After 20 Kf2, Rh2+ forces White's King back to g1, since 21 Ke3 is refuted by the fantastic mate 21 ... Nd5#! So, after 21 Kg1, Rg2+; 22 Kh1, Qh6+ with mate next move.
|Apr-28-05|| ||chess man: Alekhine just pushes his kingside pawns up and his opponent resigns after only 20 moves.|
|Apr-28-05|| ||RookFile: Kind of reminds me of this game:
R Byrne vs Fischer, 1967
|Apr-28-05|| ||Boomie: <gentle75> Herr Fritz 8 settles on dxe4 at around depth=10.|
|Apr-28-05|| ||Boomie: <zb2cr> If 20. ♗c1 ♕h6 with forced mate. The most charming one is:|
20. ♗c1 ♕h6 21. ♔f2 ♘d3+ 22. ♗xd3 ♗xg3+ 23. ♔e2 ♗g4+ 24. ♖f3 ♗xf3+
25. ♔f1 ♕h1#
|Dec-26-06|| ||ivanov90: 12.b5! (Fritz 10)For example: 12...Nf6 (the best)13.bxc6 bxc6 14.Qa4 Qd7 15.f3! |
|Dec-26-06|| ||ivanov90: Look at this fine analysis (Fritz 10):
18...Nxf4? is the mistake. Winning 18...Rg8! 19.Kf2 Nxf4! 20.gxf4 Qh4+ 21.Ke3 Rg3
But instead 19.Rae1?? better is 19.Rxf4! Bxf4 20.Rf1!! Bb8! 21.d5!! Rh3! (21...Rg8? 22.d5 Qh4 23.Be5 e3? 24.Qxe3 Be4 25.d7+!! ; 21...cxd5? 22.Bxh8 dxc4 23.Qe3! Qc7 24.Kg2=) 22.d6 Qg5 23.Be5 Qg6 (23...f6 24.Bf4 Qg6 25. Qc3 ) 24. Qc3!
So, Kmoch may be could make a draw...

This idea of recapturing on K5 with the P-Q4 instead of the B-KB4 is typical in the kingside attacks that White seeks in the London System.
The point is that the Black P-K5 drives off the White N-KB3 which defends the castled king position, increasing the odds of a successful kingside attack.
In fact, this game looks so much like a <REVERSED LONDON SYSTEM> that it is scary.
|Nov-11-12|| ||shalgo: For an example of the kind of game that can follow if Black erroneously plays Bxe4 instead of dxe4, see Reti vs Spielmann, 1922.|
|May-01-16|| ||Aleksej: Great Alekhine.Look at position after 18...Nxf4!!On 19.gxf4 Qh4 and indefensible checkmate!|
