  GrahamClayton: This game was played at the Franklin Chess Club in Philadelphia in the afternoon of January 5, prior to Alekhine giving a 34 board simultaneous exhibition at the club in the evening.

41...f4+? would block the position, and make it very difficult for the Black King to penetrate. 42...♗d2 forces the exchange of pawns, and thereby creating an entry point for the King.
