Grob should have tipped his King after 45.Ng6+ but the game went on until move 50. Pity.

1-0

Apr-06-12  ForeverYoung: Magnificent play by Alekhine. His 21 Nc6 put his opponent away after some previous stellar play!
Apr-06-12  computer chess guy: Better was 22. ♕e2 ♕e8 23. ♕xe3 ♕xc6 24. ♕xe7 with a winning endgame.
Apr-06-12  sambo: I might be very dense: but why not Rxf6 on move 43?
Apr-06-12  King Death: <CCG> That line looks better than what Alekhine played, I wonder why he missed it. Even 22.Qe1 works the same way. What's strange about this game is that queens were swapped off after never moving! I'm guessing that this hardly ever happens though I remember this free for all from Tartakower a long time ago (Bogoljubov vs Schmid, 1949).

  Calli: < Magnificent play>? It was 20...Nd5?? allowed Nc6 and then Alekhine missed the quick win by Qe2 as <CCG> pointed out.

<Sambo> Nothing wrong with Rxf6. Alekhine probably thought he had a mate..

"Alekhine, always likes to make the position complicated."

In his MBG II game 54 Alkehine says instead of 9.Be3 the move 9.a4 was in order and 9.Be3 leads to a very complicated game in the centre.

Here after 10...d5! (exclam from A.A.)

Alekhine felt he had been lured into prepared variation from this previous game Alekhine vs K Meck, 1925 where 10...Na5 was played.

Alekhine gives credit to Grob for finding the exact spot where Meck went wrong.

After Black's 42nd move in the Grob game Alekhine writes:

"Obviously forgetting to resign."
