Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-09-05  azaris: 11. c4!? is worth considering.

11...Re8 is an option.

12. Ne5! exploiting the fact that the knight can't be safely captured. Drives away the useful knight on c6 and secures a large positional advantage.

13. f4! bold but good.

13...g6 could have been played right away but better is to play the intermediate developing move Rac8 first.

15. g4! of course! Black still has chances for counterplay but against Alekhine this position is frightful.

15...h5? panic reaction.

After 23...Nc6 Black is totally lost.

Jun-24-05  DWINS: Instead of 18...Bxe5, if Rosselli had tried to win the c-pawn, it would have cost him a piece.

18...bxc5 19.dxc5 Bxc5+ 20.Rxc5! Rxc5 21.g5 and Rosselli must give up the knight. If he moves it away, 22.Nc6+ wins the queen.

Jan-18-11  birthtimes: Nice understanding of the Colle-Zukertort by Alekhine...
Mar-18-19  N.O.F. NAJDORF: Alekhine needed only a draw to take undisputed first place.
