10...Bxh4 looked risky enough but what was Black thinking of with 12...Bxf2? Suicide.

Mar-03-11  Robeson: Far better is 4...d6
Mar-04-11  BLarsen1967: One can hardly blame Nisha for playing like Capablanca. He played 4..d5 in a game against Yates 1925 - apparently this was the first time and also the last time Capa ever played Alekhine's Defense as black
Jan-23-12  Robeson: So playing a bad move also played by a World Champion almost a century before is good chess? Okay.
Jun-20-15  Mocafi: 20. Bg8+ Ke8
21. Qd7+ Kf8
22. Qf7#
