Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-13-04  DocNZ: This game is referenced in Nimzowitsch "My System" - Passed Pawn. (21st century edition - 1991)

Nimzowitsch gives the following variation as an illustration in keeping with the theme of the chapter after 29.d6!!:

"The pawn intends to lay down its life in advancing (29.d6), and the main variation would be.." 29...e4+! ("So as to prevent fxe5 which would follow ...Rxd6") 30.Kxe4 Rxd6 31.Ke5!! Rcd8 32.Bxe6. "Note that the enemy king into Black's game was made possible only by the pawn sacrifice"

However not noted is that 32.Bxe6(??) is a blunder because of... 32...Rxe6+ 33.Kxe6 Rd6 (now forced mate)34.f5 Nf8 35.Rxc6 Bf7#

  Calli: <docnz> meant 32...Rxe6+ 33.Kxe6 Rd5! followed by mate.

Interestingly, Alekhine in Shakmaty gave 32.Nc7. White is better but the position is not entirely clear

29...e4+ 30.Kxe4 Rxd6 31.Ke5 Rcd8 32.Nc7 Bf7 33.Nxe6+ Bxe6 34.Bxe6 Nd5 35.f5 Ne3

Oct-14-09  WhiteRook48: Capablanca is sometimes noted for his win Alekhine-style against Treybal
Jan-11-12  ForeverYoung: Capa would have approved of Alekhine's technique in scoring this point. Very systematic!

  plang: Alekhine used 11 Ne4 eight times in the Capablanca match; all draws. 11..N7f6 was illogical as this knight is needed to support the pawn breaks ..e5 or ..c5; 11..N5f6 is standard. Alekhine recommended 18..Nd7 with the idea of ..f6. The attempt to free his position with 23..c5 would not have worked for Black after 24 g5..Nfd5 25 dxc..Rxc5 26 Rxc5..Rxc5 27 Ne4..Rc7 28 Nd6..Nc6 29 Ng4 with a large positional edge. 48 d5! was an instructive sacrifice to activate the White king.
