Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-20-03  drukenknight: doing a "games similar" search for the Alekhine game produces several games by Amos Burn. The position in the other game can be reached by transposition from the Burn variation (4...dxe4). In this game: what if 22 Bxg6?
May-24-07  micartouse: Fine's BCE gives the queen ending position after 57. Qc2 Black to move.

Black would like to play ... f5 and e4 and make a passed pawn. However, he must first maneuver his king to the center.

Such king boldness seems counterintuitive since the defender's most useful tactic is perpetual check. However, bringing the king out increases the chance of threatening queen trades.

Aug-05-12  bengalcat47: The ending of this game can be found in Yuri Averbakh's book Queen and Pawn Endings.
