Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-11-07  who: I have no idea what's going on here. According to Fritz though, black would have been better with 41...g6!
Mar-11-07  paladin at large: Ditto. I suppose we can say that 14....Bh4 was ill-advised...instead, one of the knights to d3 might have been interesting.
Jun-09-11  ForeverYoung: Alekhine gives high praise to 12 Nd4! which compels black to play 12 ... Nxd4. Black did the best he could after 12 ... Nxe5 which was just lose two pieces for rook and pawn. I'm a little surprised that Reti got as much counterplay that he did.

In "my best games 1908-1923 Alekhine recommends 10 ... 0-0 11 Bc2 f5 12 exf6 Nxf6 13 Nb3 with white's position being "somewhat preferable".

For 11 ... Bg4 see Alekhine-Nimzovitch 1914.
