May-20-02  bishop: 33.Ba1 was the only hope to prolong the game.
Feb-18-04  Resignation Trap: White's earlier mistake was 25. Qc4?, which allowed Black to seize the c-file.
Nov-25-04  sourcerer: gruenfeld should have accepted the exchange on b3 to avoid the insuring complications bravo alekhine?!

  PizzatheHut: I really like how Alekhine used his KR pawn (starting with 27...h5) to create kingside weaknesses for his knight and queen. I can confidently say I wouldn't have found such a plan in this position. Very educational game.
Mar-30-19  SeanAzarin: Alexander The Great
Jul-23-20  zydeco: I don't think Alekhine accomplished very much in this game. 33.Qd7? is a blunder. With 33.Ba1 it's a fight for a while.
