  Phony Benoni: I really feel sorry for Black's rook on e8. Here it sticks to its post, even under the threat of immediate capture, only to have White prove that its efforts were in vain.
Aug-12-08  jsteward: why not 25.e5 instead of c5! seems a more secure outpost for the knight!

  master8ch: 25.e5 would have closed off the h2-b8 diagonal, and Alekhine always tried to keep his potential lines of attack open.
