  plang: ...5 f6 is an interesting attempt; not played anymore.

..26 f4 is a cool response to 26 Rc1.

  Mateo: We should always keep our critical judgment even with the greatest players. I found some mistakes in an analysis of Alekhine in his classical book, 200 hundred games of chess.

27. Qe2? <27. Qxf4 Qd3, Black wins according to Alekhine. But I think he is wrong. Then 28. Rfa1 holds. If 28... Rf7 29. R7a3!. So better was 27. Qxf4!.> Qe4 28. Qd1 <28. Re1 Qxe2 29. Rxe2 Bb5 30. Re1 Bd3, Black has a winning game for Alekhine. But after 31. Ng1, Black might be a bit better but there is no winning game.> Nc6 29. Re1? <29. Ra3 Nxd4 30. Re1 Nxf3 31. Rxe4 dxe4 32. Rxf3 exf3, Black wins according to Alekhine. But 32. Rxf3? is completely unnecessary. Just 32. Bxf4 is equal.>
