Sep-30-08  ToTheDeath: The price for neglecting the center is high.

13...f5 14.exf6 Bxf6 15. Ng5! is still very dangerous for Black.

Jul-25-09  backrank: It's very instructive to observe how Alekhine turns a positional advantage into a devastating attack, within only a couple of moves.

  yiotta: I regret to say I would almost certainly have been satisfied with 18.Ng6+ and a mere exchange.
Dec-15-14  JimNorCal: I am currently playing through the Vienna 1922 tournament book by GM Evans. For me, the notes are rather lackluster, but the games are exciting.

I remember Ed Lasker's description of a conversation with former WC Em Lasker prior to the 1924 New York tournament. Emmanuel told him that the Euro masters had come up with a lot of new ideas in openings and that even if Ed could find the right moves to counter these new ideas, he would leave himself handicapped by a large time deficit from having to ponder moves that the Euro could flash out in seconds.

Vienna 1922 is one of those tournaments where the new ideas got tested.

Jan-31-19  superstoned: A game where Alekhine, as Black takes a beating in a very similar opening line took place over a year earlier: Teichmann vs Alekhine, 1921
