  Gypsy: Junge's play in this game looks -- strategically and philosophically -- years before its time. The position after about 18 moves looks quite like a modern sicilian hedgehog. (Only that the e4 and d6 pawns got somehow exchanged.) And Junge plays the hedgehod splendidly; it's as if he was anticipating the play of guys like Anderson, Karpov, or Suba.
Jan-14-05  Saruman: Perhaps Junge was in time-trouble? 69.-Rg2 was more effective. For instance; 70.Nxf6 Rg1! 71.Kh2 Rxg4 and white is just lost.
Jun-05-05  PARACONT1: Gosh, was is so hard to beat Alekhine? Seemed the Black player was suffereing more than White trying to win. I'm inclined to think it's a beautiful loss rather than a win.
Mar-01-06  Maynard5: White actually achieves a superior position around move 15. But then Alekhine makes an uncharacteristic positional mistake with 18. Nc3 followed by 19. Na4, which leaves the knight vulnerable (especially after black's 21. ... a5. Instead, 18. Nd4 appears to preserve an advantage for white.
Mar-01-06  morphyvsfischer: It's the Forgotten Variation for a reason. (6 Nc3 instead of the more active 6 Bd2!)
Jun-01-08  lost in space: From my point of view it is both, a loss of White due to inaccurate moves and a win of White due to good moves.

Today it is known, that 6. ♗d2 is very promising (theory). Without theory it is -out of my view - completly impssoble to calculate the implications of this move. For example: 6...♕xd4 7. Lxb4 ♕xe4+8. ♗e2 ♕xg2 9. ♗f3 ♕g6 10. ♕d6 ♘d7. Today it is well known, that White has to play 10. ♘e2 ♘a6 11. ♗a3 ♘e7 12. ♖g1 ♕f6 with initiative (Wood-Alexander, 1948

Inaccurate White moves of White are 16. ♘b5. This is only provocing a6 (in line to blacks position and b6 is no real weaknees). Better was 16. f4. 19. ♘a4, attacing the "weak" pawn b6, but this is not really a threat.

Key moves of Black to get advantage are 20... ♘ce5!! (threat was ♖xd7 and ♘xb6). This move counters these threats and establish the own threat Qc6 with dobble attack on a4 and g2 Also 21...a5 is excellen. Black starts to attack the queenside

24. Qb3 was not the best, better was 24. ♗d4 ♘c4 25. ♗xc4 ♕xc4 26. ♗xf6 ♘xf6 27. ♘xb6 ♖xa1 28. ♖xa1 ♕b5 29. ♕d4 =

24...b5! destoys the white position on the queenside and is worth a pawn.

And this is only the first part of the game.

Dec-18-09  returnoftheking: Alekhine never allowed the "Junge"attack (D44) in his games against Junge, but I'd think it would suit his style.
Dec-18-09  returnoftheking: 2 games with D44 and Alekhine -with white of course- in the database, he scores 0/2 against unknown players! And they didn't even play what is now the main continuation of the Junge/botvinnik attack.
Nov-08-10  Xeroxx: Someone has a bad memory for variations.
Jan-15-16  Martin Riggs: I call this 1 "Alter Junge (Old Boy)." ;0]
Jan-24-17  vermapulak: World Champion Alekhine (age 49) vs. Klaus Junge (age 18), Salzburg 1942
