avidfan: Under the <Chess Challenge> profile, why is there not a consecutive record of moves played? I was thinking of using it as a sort of index to find when a move was first played. It will be useful to limit a search to a range of pages through the huge amount of kibitzes.

avidfan: White surely missed 34.Nxe6 since mate is threatened next by 35.Qxg7. 34...fxe6 35.Qxe6 is check with an additional atttacker on rook at c8. [DIAGRAM] 35...Kh8 36.Rxc8 Rxc8 37.Qxc8+ 35...Kf8 attracts 36.Rf1+ Nf6 etc. ...
   Feb-17-14 Alekhine vs Spielmann, 1923 (replies)

avidfan: From the final position, how does Black win?

avidfan: 40.Rac1+ Kd2 41.Qd1+ Ke3 42.Rf3# 40.Rac1+ Kb2 41.Qa1+ Kb3 42.Qb1+ Ka3 43.Re3+ Ka4 44.Rxc4+ Rxc4 45.Qb3+ Ka5 46.Qxc4 b5 47.Qxc5 Kxa6 48.Rxa7+ Kb8 49.Qc7# is rather long.
   Nov-16-13 S Williams vs The World, 2013 (replies)
avidfan: 17...Nb4 18.Qf5 Qc6 why not threaten Qxc2+? So if 19.Qxe5 Qxc2+ 20.Ka1 Qxb2 21.Qa5 b6 22.Qa3 Nc2+ 23.Kb1 Nxa3+24.Ka1 Nc2+ 25.Kb1 Ba3! wins [DIAGRAM]
