  tamar: Sure gets wild quick. A little echo here of his most famous promotion game Bogoljubov vs Alekhine, 1922
Apr-03-05  THE pawn: Surely that was an obvious move, but I think I wouldn't have played it, considering the queen's always been my main arsenal...I wouldn't have taken the chance, unless I was 3409% sure.

  offramp: This reminds me a lot of Karpov vs Kasparov, 1993.
May-12-12  jgsimmons: For white, wouldn't 13 Rxc5 have been better?

It might go 13. Rxc5 0-0 14. Re5 Bd6 15. Re2 Qc7 16. h3 Rfe8. Black has a huge lead in development, but White can probably hold out for a while and it's definitely better than the game line.

  kevin86: White is up a queen for rook...and he's deader than dogcrap.
Sep-16-15  catlover: The attack of the mutant pawn swarm.
Sep-16-15  The Kings Domain: Carranza bit off more than he could chew. :-)
Sep-17-15  ToTheDeath: Classic Alekhine! Great miniature.
