Nov-05-04  tempi2burn: an obvious mistake by black. but white seems to have build a lot of time on blacks kingside. the win seems to at least be in sight without the mistake
Nov-06-04  Calli: Alekhine annotated this game and said that after 16...h5! , black had the advantage. However, he says that 19...Kf8 is a mistake.

"On the right wing the King appears subject to attacks of every kind. Therefore he should stay in his place for the time being, and subsequently transpose himself, by means of castling or otherwise to the queen's wing. The best way to defend the knight was the move 19...Rh7 and then after 20.Nxg4 to play 21...Nf5 (with the threat Nf3). With this continuation Black should maintain his advantage, having the better game. After the text move White gets the initiative little by little." - Alekhine

  sea7kenp: 24 ... Kg7 was bad, allowing 25 Rg1, pinning Black's g Pawn. 24 ... Ke7 looks better.
