Kibitzer's Corner
May-26-04  Elrathia Kingi: Nice game by Alekhine. By move 32.Qg3, black is hopelessly entangled, waiting to be cut down. Note the patience of Alekhine in this game, waiting until just the right moment to make his attack, unlike Tylor, whose move 24...Qg4+ was premature (better is 24...Nf6). Also, Alekhine holds a space advantage the whole game, stemming from the early d5, which seems to be typically unsuccessful, based on the opening explorer. 38.Qc3+ would have been premature, allowing black to deflect the attack. After 39.Qc3+, Be5 fails to 40.Nf7+. Beautiful finale.
Oct-30-04  waddayaplay: Some notes by A.A himself from his games collection. After move 7.c3 he writes

"An exaggerated faith in the knowledge of my opponents was always the vulnenable part of my opening play; for instance, at San Remo, 1930 , I did not take a pawn on the tenth move which my opponent, Rubinstein, left en prise in an even more obvious way than in this game! It is obvious that 7. Bxc6 dxc6 8. Nxe5 could and should have been played, since Qd4 9. Nf3 Qxe4? would cost a piece after QxQ followed by Re1."

Dec-22-05  alicefujimori: Good game by Alekhine again with the Worrall, except for the fact that he missed the simple 7.Bxc6 leading to a win of a pawn.
