  profK: 23...Qc8 24.Qe7 seems to end it quickly.
Jul-14-20  zydeco: I think Alekhine has a couple of other games with this motif, a queen rolls to the other side of the board gaining a tempo on every move and landing on an unexpected square. The position at move 23 is like a three-move problem: how does white’s queen get to g5 as fast as possible. Probably both players saw more or less this position from around move 17. Von Balla decided to pocket the pawn and exchange missing the route d7-e7-g5.
