  al wazir: According to Aleksandr Kotov's analysis in his two-volume collection, "The Chess Legacy of A.A. Alekhine," after the 30th move "black's position is significantly worse, although he has an extra pawn."

The first exclamation point Kotov gives is after 42...a5: "This appears to be a mistake because of white's reply, but in reality it is a step toward a notable drawing combination."

I won't translate all of Kotov's comments; I'm sure SF's analysis is at least as good. But I'll mention one more. He gives 45...Bc6 *two* exclamation points and says "The bishop has disrupted communications between the white queen and rook, and it can't be taken because of a perpetual: 45. Rxc6 Qf2+. If white tries to play for a win, he risks losing, e.g., 46. Rb2 Qd4 47. Qa3 (or 47. Rd2 Bb5 48. Qa3 Rc3) Ba4! (But not 47...Bxd5 48. exd5 Rc3? 49. Rb8+, with mate to follow.)"
