  Sneaky: Something's not right here... probably a wrong score.
Jun-11-03  huflix: Wrong score, or the last move is a typo. I think alekhine continued with 21.Qxf2 instead of Qxg1. After 22.Kxf2 fxe4+ things dont look good for white.
Jun-11-03  AgentRgent: Assuming it really was 21...Qxf2+, I think white can survive with 22. Kxg2 fxe4+ 23. Kg3!? (perhaps continuing 23...Nf1+ 24. Kg2 Nxd2 25. Qxd2).
Jun-13-03  suenteus po 147: What about 21...Qg4+!? There's no adequate defense that I can see. Ke1 loses the knight, Kd3 loses the rook, and Rf3 or Nf3 allows fxe4 and added pressure from the rook against the doomed f3 square. It's hard for me to believe Alekhine didn't see this and take advantage of it.
Jan-02-05  DanielBryant: Yeah, this is definitely wrong.
Premium Chessgames Member We took out the move 21...Qxg1? because it doesn't make any sense. We're not sure what was really played. Crafty likes suenteus' 21...Qg4+. (Although it's not as clear as some may believe, because of the pin on the d-pawn: 21...Qg4+ 22.Nf3 fxe4 23.Qxe4 ).

Who among us owns that gigantic Alekhine book? I'm curious to see how they have this game listed.
