  Chessical: Having not played <18.d5>, Viakhiev's game goes downhill fast under Alekhine's pressure. By move 32 Viakhiev has a completely lost position. His K is stranded, and if he moves the Bf2, he will be mated.
Sep-18-04  Knight13: I guess chasing the black queen wasn't a good idea. It drives the black queen to more useful position lol.

<Chessical>,
18.d5 ♘b8 19.d6 with the threat of 20.♕f7 looks a lot better than 18.♕c3.

Alekhine considered this game to be one of his favourite CC games played during his youth.

Oct-23-12  lentil: An astonishing mate!
Dec-23-18  Violin sonata: Great game by Alekhine!!!
