May-28-05  Hidden Skillz: zigzagin queen.. eliminating white from checking blacks king.. but aslo gettin the piece back..
May-28-05  samvega: Sweet child, in time you'll see the line,
The line that's drawn between good and bad
See the blind man shooting at the world
Bullets flying taking toll
If you been bad -- Oh Lord I bet you have --
And you've not been hit by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes, bow your head,
And wait for the ricochet
Ooh ooh ooh...

May-28-05  samvega: Thx for pointing this game out <Hidden>. Lots of subtle manoeuvering by Alekhine. Like Qb7-b6-a5 -- who would've guessed the a-pawn would prove such a fruitful target? And the way he lands the dark squared bishop on c1, and the prescience of 36..Bb2!

  Calli: 38.Nxa3? is mistake because it allows Qe1+! etc. Junge evidently counted on 38...Qxa3 39.Qd8+ Kh7 40.Bd3+ g6 41.Bxg6+ fxg6 42.Qc7+ with a draw. A pity he didn't realize that 38.f5! immediately and White has good winning chances.
May-28-05  samvega: So I guess 36..Bb2 was not so hot after all? Perhaps the less ambitious 36..Qd2? After the exchange of queens, if black can still induce f4, then he may still have chances of winning the a-pawn, or at least forcing the knight into passivity.
May-28-05  roni.chessman: 38. qe1 was pretty cool from alekhine's part...
Feb-08-12  Whitehat1963: Excellent Thursday/Friday puzzle after 37. f4.
