  Honza Cervenka: 12...g4 with an idea 13.Nd2 f3 14.Nxf3!? gxf3 15.Qxf3 0-0 16.Bxf7+ Kh7 17.Qd3 Rxf7!? 18.Rxf7 Be6 etc. seems to be better.
Oct-22-03  Cyphelium: Honza Cervenka> 12.- g4 13.Nd2 f3 14.Nxf3!? gxf3 15.Qxf3 0-0 and now instead of 16. Bxf7+, 16. Qh5 is perhaps more interesting. For example 16. Qh5 Kh7?! 17. Bxf7 Rxf7 18. Rxf7 Be6? 19. Qxh6+ mating. A better defence is 16. Qh5 Nh8 17. Bxh6 Be6, but after 18. Bc2 white still has threats.

  Honza Cervenka: <Cyphelium> What about 16.Qh5 Kh7 17.Bxf7 Nh8?
Oct-22-03  Cyphelium: <Honza> I thinks it looks like the refutation of my idea.
Oct-22-03  TheAussiePatzer: If I could calculate like Alekhine I'd play the King's gambit also.
May-22-04  HailM0rphy: Alekhine plays the Kings Gambit suprisingly well..He keeps basic principles in tact..alot of times unlike Morphy. Like Holding on to that white bishop so it can murder that key f7 square. Also he pounces as SOON as anyone dares to castle kingside.
Jul-13-09  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Simply adorable final 2 moves by AA.
Jun-11-15  TheFocus: This game is from a simultaneous exhibition in Olomouc, Czechoslovakia on March 14, 1925.

Alekhine scored +32=6-5.

See <Alechin v Ceskoslovensku> game 12, pg. 5.

Mar-07-18  sneaky pete: Alekhine (in Kagan's Neueste Schachnachrichten, 1925 # 3) gives the move order 5.Nc3 Bg7 6.Bc4 .. and condemns 11... Ng6 as a mistake. He suggests 11... 0-0 as a better move, that would weaken the effect of "the next stereotyped countermove".

Alekhine comments on the pathetic 16... Qe8
"Insufficient [...]. But 16... d5 would have been hopeless too in the long run".
