Apr-20-07  DMBFan23: why not 10...a4?
Sep-14-07  amntony: Dear DMBFan23,

Here's why? After 10...a4, it could be like this:

11.cxd6 axb3 12.dxe7 Qxd1 13.Rxd1 Kxe7
14.Bg5 h6 15.Nd5 Ke8 16.Nc7+ Kf8

12...Nxe7 13.Bb5+ Kf8 14.Be3 bxa2
15.Bc5 Qxd1 16.Rfxd1 Rb8 17.f3 b6
18.Ba3 h6 19.e5 Nh5 20.g4 Nf4
21.Bd6 Ra8 22.Bc6 Ra7 23.Bb8 Ra6

12...Qxe7 13.Nd5 Bxd5 14.exd5 Ne5
15.f4 Ned7 16.Bf3 Kf8 17.Re1 Qd8
18.d6 Rb8 19.Re7 Qb6 20.Be3 Qb5
21.g4 h6 22.g5 hxg5 23.fxg5 Nh7
24.Bd5 Re8 25.Rxf7+ Kg8 26.Rf1#

15...Bd5 16.exd5 Nce5 17.d6 Ke8
18.Bb5+ Kd8 19.axb3 Rxa1 20.Rxa1 Rh7


Sep-14-07  amntony: Alekhine's 6.Nb3 is to refuse the counter-Maroczy's move by Black, specifically, it's Ng4 on the Black's 7th move :-)
Sep-14-07  Aspirador: No offense, <amntony> but this line is not correct. After 10...a4 11.cxd6 axb3 12.dxe7 Qxd1, Black is simply a piece up. 10...a4 was playable and certainly better than the game, White probably responds 11.Nd4.
Oct-21-10  arecely63: perhaps data entry error here explains if 9...h5 was the actual move
Feb-11-11  goofalumps: Alekhine's Best Games has the move as 9...h5, but it doesn't seem to make any difference
