  Calli: <weary willy> Golembek fails to mention that 21.Nxe6 wins two pawns because 21...fxe6 22.Qxe6+ Bf7 23.Bxd5! and now 23...Bxe6 24.Bxe6+ regains the Queen. Or 23...Qxd5 24.Qxe7. I wonder if this isn't what Alekhine really pointed out. 24.h4 is not so impressive.
Aug-18-20  Granny O Doul: Sort of nice, but not really a zugzwang because White to move wins with 58. Bxf7+ or even h7+.
