  MissScarlett: The August 1993 <Chess> dubbed this <A little-known Alekhine Brilliancy>, but I think it's a good example of a weaker player in thrall to a great one. The <Chess> author asserts Black is lost from 11...c5?, but 17...Kf8? is such a craven decision when 17...Qxg5 is crying out loud!

After which 19...fxg6? (19...Qxg2 or Bd7) surrenders the advantage, and 22...Bd7?? (22...Re7 is a perpetual), the game. And yes, this was a tournament game, not a simul.

Jul-27-14  aliejin: This type of situation is an episode
of the most natural in the life of the great
chess players.

at that time, where deep
knowledge was not disseminated
as it happens, dramatically,

Today is frequent anachronism ..
This is ... weak players, "armed" with their computers come to judge and often to condemn,
every game of the past...
without any consideration
