Feb-19-07  popski: 21.h3 looks like a blunder, probably was then Molina happy for a short period of time...
Mar-25-11  redorc19: brilliant game... Alekhine always amazes me.
Mar-25-11  DarthStapler: What happens after 31...g5?
Mar-26-11  detritus: First-time commenter, shaking the rust off, so someone check my work...

Tried for a quick mate, but it doesn't seem to be there. Best I could come up with was:

31. ........ g5
32. Rh8+ Kg7
33. Rdg8+ Kf6
34. Rxh6+ Ke5
35. Rxg5+

Then White has Black's g and h pawns and a king hunt, but I couldn't even force mate from there.

There's also:

31. ........ g5
32. Rh8+ Kg7
33. Bd4+ f6
34. Rdg8+ Kf7
35. Rf8+ Ke7 (35... Kg7, 36. Bxf6#)
36. Bxf6+ Ke6
37. Rxh6

Then if 37... gxh4, 38. Bxb2 with discovered check. Or 37... Nxc4 38. Bxg5 again with discovered check. I think other options for Black's 37th are even worse.

Jul-09-11  Keith Dow: Dear detritus,

"First-time commenter, shaking the rust off, so someone check my work... Tried for a quick mate, but it doesn't seem to be there. Best I could come up with was:"

31. ........ g5
32. Rh8+ Kg7
33. Rdg8+ Kf6
34. Rxh6+ Ke5

Now checkmate in three.

35. Re8+ Re7
36. Rxe7+ Kf4
37. g3#
