Apr-27-05  BlazingArrow56: I like how Alekhine is able to keep making threats not worrying about his light-squared bishop.
Apr-27-05  lopium: It was as if 21...Rb6 was the losing move. And Alekhine found a way to win at 100%.
Apr-27-05  RookFile: Was 10.... 0-0 better? Not sure,
Alekhine would attack kingside I'm
sure.

  kevin86: Euwe was highly interested in capturing Alekhine's bishop-but was unable to,due to threats against his king.

Reminds me of the poor guy who wanted to drain a swamp-but was constantly hounded by alligators.

Apr-08-08  Knight13: Alekhine could see ahead more than anybody. I bet he saw 20...b5 and noticed that if Black tries to go bishop hunting he would fall into a trap.
Nov-05-10  soothsayer8: It's very classic attacking chess style -- the only pieces that matter are the ones in the attack, of course, that often leads to lost games, but every once and a while, a genius like Alekhine can pull it off quite nicely ;)
Jan-03-12  King.Arthur.Brazil: The main black'smistake was 11... Bd7. he must play 11...0-0. The BQ has no retirement and Alekhine combines treats to Q and to K at same time... 12.Not Nc3 cause Qa5. Now, 12.Nf4 Qa5+ 13.Bd2 Qd6 Bb4 and black is very very bad... 12...Qc6 13.Qb2 Na4!? 13.Qb3 Qa4 level. 13.Bd2 Rc8? Maybe 13...a5 to avoid Bb4.After Qb2 two treats e4-5 and Bb4 explodes black positon, proofs that Rc8 was the mistake! Following is a magistral chess class.
Apr-04-12  Anderssen99: 21.Qf4!! is one of those staggering moves that win games. It drew the rook to (b6) not allowing Black to play 22. ...,Qxa6 in reply to 22.exd5, and thereafter the game was decided quickly. Truly one of Alekhine's best games.
Nov-09-13  jonie: 16.Bb4... was the start of the pressure to Black. A nice game by Alekhine!

  Honza Cervenka: Black should have played 17...f5 or 18...f5 with next Kf7. Already 18...b6 looks like the decisive mistake. Alekhine's finish was awesome.

  Honza Cervenka: Of course, in final position black has no satisfactory defence against Qf4-c7+ with quick mate.
