  Honza Cervenka: 42...Nxf5 would be bad for 43.Be4. Great fight.

  Honza Cervenka: <Calli: 24...Bxa2 appears to win because if 25.Ra1 Bb3> You are right. And it seems to be even better if black inserts 24...Nh4 25.Bf1 Bxa2 etc.

Also instead of 39...Kd7 black could have played 39...d3! with huge and probably decisive advantage.

Apr-20-15  ColdSong: A very interesting game anyway,Alekhine shows here his endless imagination to stay as long as possible dangerous and compensate these pawns.And,as often,like a kind of present offered by Caissa for this risky but lively game,is not punished at the end.
