  Calli: Alekhine here plays the losing 29...c3?? Clearly 30.Nxc6! cxb2 31.Bxb2 wins since 31...bxc6 32.b7 queens the pawn. Sometimes reputation alone lets you get away with horrible blunders!

Jul-27-14  posoo: LOL but who says dat Allokone has to take da horse?!
May-18-15  Naniwazu: He doesn't have to..but after something like 31...Nc5 32. Bd4 Nxa4 33. Na5 Bc8 white is a pawn up and black's pieces are very passive.
May-10-17  Retireborn: If this score is correct then both 36...Nxe3 and 37.Qxe3 are blunders, because White can win with the intermezzo 37.Bd4! Possibly the players assumed that 37...Nd1+ would suffice, but after 38.Kg2 Qc7 39.a5 White is winning because the black queen is commited to preventing Nd8+ and the black knight cannot get back.
