Jun-05-04  Poohavez: Brilliant mating combination missed by Black
38.f5!! and there is no defence against 38...Qg3, 39.Qxg3 Rh5# 38.Rxg6 is responded by 38...Rxg6 and as above.
Jun-06-04  iron maiden: "You don't just look for mates in three against Alekhine!"
Jun-06-04  Poohavez: <iron maiden> Phui! That's the logic of defeatist. One just plays the best move in a position. Else, why bother playing at all?
Jun-06-04  Jonathan Kolkey: It pays to have a reputation. Evidently Alekhine's opponent did not have enough experience against top competition to handle his nerves well at the critical moment

  wwall: Black also had a win after 40...Qd1 instad of Rh5+. After 40...Qd1 (threatening 41...Qh5 mate), if 41.Rf3, them 41...Rg1, threaterning 42...g5 mate. If 41.Qf3 (instead of 41.Rf3), then 41...Rh5+ 42.Kg4 Qg1+ 43.Qg3 Rg5+ wins the Queen.

The game is drawn by perpetual check since 48.Kf3?? loses to 48...Qg2 mate.
