May-23-06  Runemaster: A very smooth game. Alekhine seems happy to exchange pieces, but by combining threats with his queen and rook, he reaches a winning endgame.
Aug-03-07  sanyas: Why not 32...Kg7? Better than a lost ending, at any rate.
Oct-15-08  chocobonbon: <Runemaster>Agree. Your collection of Alekhine's later period is great. My first book on Alekhine was the Alexander book in HB. I once considered it a poor relation to Alekhine's own books but as for the games themselves I now find his later productions most enjoyable. He was an artist to the end.

  ray keene: alekhine was a quick and effective learner-compare this game with botvinnik v alekhine avro 1938 which i analyse in todays chess column in the times. alekhine lost to botvinnik and soon after he wins a very similar game against eliskases, employing the selfsame botvinnik strategy against which he had lost.
Nov-29-16  tigreton: Yes, the strategy is the same Alekhine suffered in that game against Botvinnik. The pawn structure is symetrical, so the key is to keep a constant pressure to take advantage of the more active pieces and not to lose the iniciative. Alekhine creates threats all along the game, on b7, d5, f7, the enemy ranks... He is always ahead.
