Mar-08-04  islero: 1-0 ???
19 … Qxc8 20 Nd6+ Kd7
Black wins, am I missing something?
Mar-08-04  Cyphelium: Quite strange, since 19. Qxd8+ Kxd8 20. Nxf7+ wins easily. Probably one move is missing.
Premium Chessgames Member <19. Qxd8+ Kxd8 20. Nxf7+> We'll assume that's how the game actually concluded.
Mar-08-04  WMD: But that was Alekhine's excuse.
Apr-27-04  PawnPoet: Black cannot hold his two advanced pawns and is down the it will be a white victory.
Apr-27-04  JPrimero: Very wierd...Black's pawns beyond past the White pawns
May-11-04  Reti Incarnate: To my (feeble) mind, white's play has not been entirely satisfactory and he did not deserve to win...but then again, neither does black in this position. After white has taken Black's rook, his own rook will go to f1, then take the f4 pawn while black is worrying about recapturing the Black knight. Then White will use his king to take the e3 pawn using his king, since it is shielded from any rook proctection by the advanced e5 pawn. After all of this, White will be an exchange and two solid pawns up, more than enough to win.

At least that's how I see it...

  Whitehat1963: Perhaps a game for Ben Lau's picturesque positions collection with passed pawns on the e-file for both sides. Interesting.
Jul-16-04  ConspTheory06: I dont see how you all think that black can even capture the white knight after taking the rook because the g6 square is a perfect escape plan.
