What a delightful final position! And all just started by 32...♖xg2+!! This game's just awesome! No one could expect the thunderbolt 32...♖xg2+!! This game has to be seen by everyone!

Jun-17-07  spacetimereality: I believe that the threat after 33. Kxg2 is 33..Qe4+. 34. Kg3 (or Kh3) Rf3+ and it spells "finito" for white.

34. Kg1 (or Kf1) Qxb1+ 35. Ke2 Qe4+ and I can't see how it proceeds. I don't have a chess program, can anyone help me out? What's the finish after my line?

Looks impressive, but it's a draw.

Jun-13-20  Viking707: Alekhine, like all great chess champions, once they see a path to victory, their attack is relentless, and irrefutable.
