|May-15-06|| ||WhoKeres: It's interesting that Alekhine played 5...a6, which could have transposed to the modern and very popular 4...a6 line in the Slav defense. Alekhine was just an incredibly creative player, and I'll bet he didn't want to waste his usual defens, 4...dxc4 on a plyer like Reinfeld, whom he probably expected to beat with Black.|
|Dec-30-07|| ||Dr. J: It looks to me as if Black has a simple win at move 32 (and again at move 35): 32 ... Bxc4, 33 Nxc4 (bxc4 Nxa4) Nxc4, 34 bxc4 Kf8, 35 Kf2 Ke7, 36 Ke3 Kd6, 37 Kd2 (or a pawn move) Kc5, 38 Kd3 b3, 39 Kc3 b2, 40 Kxb2 Kxc4, and then Black wins the a-pawn and the game. But it is inconceivable to me that these two players could miss something seemingly so obvious. So what am I missing?|
|Dec-30-07|| ||Calli: <Dr. J> Do you ever hear from Andrew Toney? :->|
32...Bxc4 33.bxc4 Nxa4 34.Nb3 is not so clear 34...Kf8 35.Kf2 Ke7 36.Ke3 Kd6 37.Kd2 Kc6 38.Nxa5+ Kb6 39.Nb3 Nb2 40.c5+ Kb5 41.Kc2 At least I could not force the win.
|Dec-30-07|| ||Dr. J: <Calli> Thanks. I missed that White could recover the pawn. As regards Andrew Toney: sorry, you must be thinking of some other Dr. J.|
|Dec-30-07|| ||Jim Bartle: How about Maurice Cheeks? The other guard, who seems to be a fine person. I liked the way he stepped up to help sing when the poor 9-year-old girl froze up with nerves while singing the national anthem.|
|Aug-26-10|| ||Calli: <Dr. J> Taking with knight 32...Nxc4 does appear to win 33.bxc4 Bd7 34.c5 Bxa4 35.Nc4 Bd7 etc|
