Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-07-04  Hidden Skillz: black played too much wit his pawns on the king side after castling..n ended up in a desperate which alekhine executed beatifully
Aug-03-07  mateifl: A lesson in how to exploit advantage in development.
Aug-03-07  CapablancaFan: 14...f6? No respect for pawn structure and Marco paid the price for it.
Feb-18-14  Poisonpawns: After 10...exd4 11.Nxd4 Re8 12.Bf4 Nc5!
Where is the advantage for White? I don`t see any. Marco self destructed later with Kh7,g6 etc and of course the wasted time allowed 14.f4 from Alekhine.
Sep-28-15  INFINIT8: I do see that Alekhine sensed Marco's timidness and allowed a little development to happen on the black side. That idea worked as Marco made a fumble of his initiative and gave too many weak points to defend
