  thegoodanarchist: Great notes!
Dec-18-06  syracrophy: I don't understand how could a tournament was played in Munich, a land occupied by war during 1942 by World War II. And also, where Alekhine played, a person persecuted by the Nazis
Jan-16-08  nolanryan: fantastic annotation, describing all the pitfalls in a relatively rare line.

I feel that 10 .. Bh5 would have been a better choice for the bishop becase on e6 it is frequently threatened by the d5 pawn fork.

Alekhine, persecuted by the Nazis? Not exactly...

Jan-16-09  chocobonbon: In the note to Whites's 18th I think ♕a1 must have been meant as e1 is occupied.
Dec-09-13  TheMacMan: why does alekhine play 24. Ra2? i just dont get it, why not apply more pressure to the queenside or something? theres no way his rook can be blocked on the a file, someone please help me understand

  tamar: Alekhine's note after 24...e4 shows that he was expecting 24...Nxc5, so I infer that with 24 Ra2 he was in effect saying pass, inviting Barcza to choose his poison.

<Veritable desperation. If 24...Nxc5 there follows 25 Bxc5 Rxc5 26 Be4 etc.

Dec-10-13  TheMacMan: okay now i get it, thanks, are there any other examples of games that have "choose your poison" type moves, im trying to learn all themes of chess moves, like deflection, retreating, etc. so i can be universal
