  WannaBe: Can some one explain to me the 20. Qf2 move? I can't figure out what it's purpose defence/offence wise. I came across this game from Alex. Alekhine's book. Thanks in advance.

  tpstar: Black threatened 20 ... Re8 chopping wood and relieving some pressure. Also 20. Qf2 Bxh2?! 21. Qh4 Qd6? 22. f4 wins a piece, or 21 ... Bd6 22. Qxf6 Bf8 23. Bxf8 & 24. Re7 wins. Keres' plan was to repost the Queen on h4. Black's back rank weakness proved fatal.
