Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-11-03  kostich in time: Another Alekhine Sicilian..Tartakover included it in Der Hypermoderne Schachpartie
Dec-03-11  ForeverYoung: Alekhine take command with ... d5 and ... e5 and masterfully utilizes his initiative!
Dec-13-14  nhnsn: Alekhine says in his "Best Games..." after 15.Bd2:" The text-move conceals a trap. If, for example, 15...f4 16.Ng3 e4 17.Nxe4! fxe4 18.Qxe4 and wins." Notwithstanding, after 18..Rf3, I see no win, e.g.:19.Qh7+ Kf7 20.c4 Nf4 21.Bc3 Nxd3 22.Bxf6 Bxf6 23.Rxd3 Bxb2 24.Rb1 Nxc4, and Black has the material advantage...
Jun-21-17  RKnight: The ending position is interesting. White resigns despite being up a N for a P, but black is threatening mate starting with 32...Rxh3+. What can white do? 32 Rc2 Rxh3+, 33 gxh3 Qxh3+, 34 Rh2 Qf3+ 35 Rg2 Qxd1+ 36 Kh2 Qxd6+ and cleans up in this forced line. Alternatively 32 Qf1 Bf4. 33 Qg1 Rxh3+, 34 gxh3 Qxh3+ and mate next. So white must have seen all this and was correct to resign.
