Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-07-12  Abdel Irada: Taking revenge in the rematch from the drubbing three years before, Alekhine takes control of this game from the outset and proceeds to push Tsvetkov through the wall without benefit of a door. In the final position, White threatens mate, and there's no good way to stop it.
Aug-21-21  tbontb: Alekhine manoeuvres patiently against the damaged Black Q-side and induces an additional weakness on e6. After 49.Rxa6 White is clearly winning so the last chance is probably the plausible line 48....Rc7 49.Kc2 Rc6 50.Na4+ Kb7 51.b5 axb5 52.cxb5 Rc8 53.Ra6 e5 54.Nc3, though still with a significant plus for White.
