Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-19-05  sneaky pete: 22.Rf6 .. in this game appears to be the original <Alekhine's block>, used by Fischer against Benko's Pirc in 1963. Black has no defence against the threat Rf6-h6(-h8), e.g. 22... Qb8 23.Rh6 f5 24.gxf6 .. and wins. Still, the obvious 22.Nf6+ gxf6 23.gxf6 .. with Qh6 .. and mate seems to be more efficient.
Dec-14-14  TheFocus: From a simul in Moscow, Russia on March 4, 1910.

Alekhine's score was +15=6-1.
