Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-10-04  chessman6555: 13.d5 was the gives White's pieces' more scope.
Jan-18-04  chessman6555: Suppose 17...Qd6 18.Bf4 was suffocating
Jun-22-06  Mr. Braithwaite: 24...Rd8?? was the blunder of this game. it could have been 24...Re8 25.Rd1 h6 26.Qxf5 Nxf5 27.Rh3 c4 28.Bc5 Re5 29.Bb4 Re2 30.g4 Rxb2 31.Bc3 Rxa2 32.Rd8+ and black has good drawing chances
Sep-18-17  andrea volponi: 18...Bb7!-d5 Nd4 -Ne5 Qd8 -Bxh7+ =
Dec-10-21  eyalbd: Alekhine in his book My Best Games of Chess writes after 19. ♗g5! :

<The main idea of this move is shown by the following short variation: 19... ♗xd4 20. ♗f5 ♖xe1+ 21. ♕xe1 ♕d6 22. ♕e8+ ♕f8 23. ♗xh7+ and wins the Queen; and since 19... ♗xg5 20. ♘xg5 g6 21.dxc5 would have led to a hopelessly lost endgame, Black must try the sacrifice of the exchange>
