Apr-11-07  e4Newman: nice play be Alekhine. even after Yates trades his rook, Alekhine's remaining is still far better.
Apr-11-07  e4Newman: benzol's game collection from this event is great - what reference did you use?
Apr-11-07  Marmot PFL: The game is decided by move 15 when Yates overlooks a simple combination. The rest is technique.
Apr-11-07  e4Newman: Alekhine beat Yates previously with another nice combination. Chernev annotates in "most instructive games".
