Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-24-07  OJC: Alekhine must have been in serious time trouble to play 38.Qd1? instead of 38.d7 which wins immediately.
Jul-07-07  DWINS: <OJC>, You are absolutely correct. Reshevsky should have been punished for the losing move 36...Kg7

After the game, Reshevsky demonstrated the correct drawing move 36...Nxg4! which leads to a perpetual check after 37.fxg4 Qd4! 38.Qe8+ Kg7 39.d7 Qd2+ 40.Kh3 Qd3!

If Alekhine would have gotten greedy and promoted his pawn to a queen he would have been mated: 41.d8Q Qf1+ 42.Kh4 g5+ 43.Qxg5+ hxg5+ 44.Kh5 Qf6 and he can't avoid mate.
