|Oct-15-06|| ||McCool: Notes about this game:
6. ..e7 <was considered a new move at the time.>
17.e4 <a bad plan, according to Alekhine; 17.f4 was safe.>
18.f4? <perhaps the losing move; White's pawn storm will stall and his /e4 is without space.>
21.h4 <21.xe6? e5! is an interference move winning the Exchange.>
21. ..f7 <Alekhine's gun! tripled major pieces on a file.>
22. ..h8! <a quiet move, improving position before undertaking action.>
The game finishies with 33.gxh f5+ 34.e1 g1+ wins the ueen. The final match score: 10-4-11.
|Sep-20-07|| ||kevin86: Alekhine uses a heavy piece assault along the f-file. White's forces looked disjointed and confused,to say the least. White could have resigned after the rook fell,as the game was hopeless.|
|Oct-29-07|| ||PinnedPiece: What could have been the point of White's 24th move Rxe6?|
|Oct-29-07|| ||Calli: "the point of White's 24th move Rxe6?"
This game was part of Euwe's collapse in this match. Why do kibitzer's never write "Euwe was on drugs" or such explanation? Only Alekhine's losses must be explained by substance abuse.
Alekhine was not too sharp either, missing the simple 25...d4 winning immediately.
|Oct-30-07|| ||pacelli: <Calli> Because Euwe had no vices. Because he was mere mortal. Because he's no genius like Alekhine. And of course to be a genius in any field incl chess, one must demonstrate grave private weaknesses to support the idea that all geniuses are petty or faulty or far-from-perfect human beings.|
|Oct-30-07|| ||Calli: <pacelli> Thank you for the thoughtful reply. Wish that I believed in it, but CG kibitzers mostly just want to make a smart remark. They don't analyze the game and present no evidence for their allegation , see Game Collection: Alekhine was drunk! . Its just a desire to make a joke.|
|Oct-30-07|| ||RookFile: Calli: Fritz 10 does prefer your 25.... d4, rating it at -2.33, but Alekhine's 25....Nc2 isn't bad at -1.81. Apparently, both moves win.|
|Apr-08-08|| ||Knight13: What happens if White takes the e6 pawn before move 24?|
|Jul-24-09|| ||M.D. Wilson: 25. d4 is simpler.|
|Aug-22-11|| ||Ulhumbrus: 17 Re4 obstructs White's e pawn. This suggests 17 Rd1 instead.|
|Jan-04-12|| ||King.Arthur.Brazil: I suppose that Wh need to attack and win at any cost, but he couldn't combine a Bl king attack with a e6 P attack. At 15.Qe3 he chose an fault plan, and Te4...went worst. Black explore the R bad position and win "easily"... Genius makes things simpler.|
