  tpstar: <F47> 24 ... Kf8 25. Rh8+ Ke7 26. Qxe6+ Kd8 27. Rxe8+ Nxe8 28. Nxf7+ wins material, or 25. Rh8+ Ng8 26. Nxe6+ Ke7 27. Bg5+ Rf6 (27 ... Kd7 28. Nxg7+ wins the Queen) 28. Nxg7 wins material (28 ... Qf8 29. Qe6+ Kd8 30. Rxg8; 28 ... Qf7/Qd7 29. Re1+). This is an excellent game to study, because Alekhine was one of the greatest masters of the attack ever.

  MissScarlett: Skinner & Verhoeven give Black as M.Apel, and three sources are given. Game was one of 27, a very tough simul where Alekhine could score only +10 -8 =9.
