Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-11-08  tomfoolery: There's absolutely no way the rook endgame after move 35 is lost for black.
Jul-11-08  syracrophy: 48...♖xf4 49.♖xf6+! ♖xf6 50.g5+ ♔g6 51.gxf6 ♔xf6 52.a5 wins
Sep-08-14  ssitimefill: Very instructive knight sacrifice! I am surprised this game is not better known.
Sep-08-14  visayanbraindoctor: The multi-combinational sequence

20. Rb1 Nc4 21. Nd4 Qc5 22. Ne6 fe6 23. Qg4 Kh8 24. Rb7 Rc7 25. Rc7 Qc7 26. Bc4

was probably calculated by the great Alekhine from start to finish. It nets him a pawn and exposes the Black King.

It isn't everyone that can even regard 22. Ne6 as an option from the starting position. IMO very difficult to spot. Yet AAA made a career in spotting just these kinds of moves. His combinational sequences often contained unexpected twists right in middle or at the end.

This is much easier said than done. IMO no master presently active today can find such Alekhine combinational sequences as consistently or well as AAA himself. (Except for the now retired Kasparov.)

Jan-14-17  nummerzwei: Conceivably, Black missed that 11...c4 is met by 12.Bh7+, winning.
