  Ron: I came across this game from the Random Game feature. After noticing that this game was played in Cracow/Warsaw 1941, I wondered if this was one of those Nazi sponsored tournaments. Looks like so: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genera...

As to the game itself, 20 Nf5 is an interesting move, leaving a knight en prise. Alekhine's attack here seems sound.
