Jan-21-04  Paul Stanley: Surely there is a mistake here 30 ...Re4 dosn't make sense white just plays 31 fxe4. It must be 30 ... Rd4

  Phony Benoni: A lesson in maintaining the initiative. Alekhine seizes it with 11...c4 and never lets go.

On move 31, White had no choice but to surrender the queen since 31.Qe2 is answered by 31...Rd2. And you gotta love how Alekhine doesn't bother taking it, but goes straight for mate.

Sep-18-12  PizzatheHut: What is the idea behind move 22...Rf5? I can't figure out what Alekhine was planning, and I can't see a threat from white he's reacting to. Anyone got any ideas?

I guess that the main purpose of 22...Rf5 was just to provoke g3-g4.
