Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-23-03  Kenneth Sterling: The losing move in this one is 19Qc5. Black has to play 19Bxg6 followed by 20. Qc6+ Kf8 21. hxg6 Qb5 and something like 22. Qxb5 Rxb5 or 22. Qf3 f6. I am not crazy about 17Be7 either.
Jan-23-03  ksadler: If there is one thing I have learned in playing the Alekhine in the past few years (and its not much) is that since the f6-knight is either on the queenside or traded off (as in this line), it is essential to develop your pieces quickly and castle your king to safety (on either side). Moves like 5. .. c6, (when 5. .. Bf5 and 6. .. e6 would have been preferable), 9. .. Qa5, 10. .. b5 and 11. .. c5 would have all been better developing his kingside and castling there, or developing his queenside and castling there instead of trying to counterattack on the queenside when Adams is obviously looking for some action on the kingside.
Feb-02-06  Frankly: Igor Stohl has the most stupendously rich and complex analysis of the unplayed tactical variations this game spawned, in his wonderful *Instructive Modern Chess Masterpieces* (2001), game 4.
