Jul-04-05  mas o menos: pawn roller. you see it in a lot of vishy's games.
Sep-12-05  Hemmeireoid5: Quick comment followed by a quick question. 1) Two great tacticians but Alekhines greater strategic knowledge won the game. 2) Why doesn´t Flohr play 28, Bxh6?
Sep-12-05  Alekhinelover: I think it's because 28....Rg8 followed by Nf5.

  Calli: Very interesting would have been
28.Bxh6 Rg8 29.g4! fxg3 30.fxg3 Nf5 31.Bxg5 Rxg5 32.Rd5! followed by g4.
Jul-11-13  RookFile: Practically speaking, this game was over when the queens were trade on move 11.
Jul-12-13  aliejin: "Practically speaking," poorly expressed .....

"Theoretically", you might say, the game is over
Because after the exchange of queens Black has
pawn majority in the flank king ...

But then comes the "practical" aspect, always difficult and always not without hope
, theoretically ,for the side in problems ...

in other words you should play chess and
alekhine do it in a way it's easy to understand
when the game is over ... but hard to see
in front of the chessboard

Jan-01-15  wrap99: This games illustrates to me why I will never be world chess champion. Or maybe not even a grandmaster.
