Mar-31-05  dac1990: An interesting final position which is characteristic of Alekhine's style.
Oct-22-05  Karpova: gruenfeld's 5...e6 was a bad mistake. he should have played nbd7 (Rubinstein vs W Von Holzhausen, 1926)
Aug-27-09  WhiteRook48: Alekhine's revenge on Gruenfeld
Nov-21-13  dark.horse: 14.f4 5 pawns abreast. neat!
Nov-22-13  offramp: Alekhine goes up & up & up in my top-10 list every year.
Nov-22-13  john barleycorn: <offramp: Alekhine goes up & up & up in my top-10 list every year.>

Where will he be in 11 years?

Nov-23-13  offramp: <john barleycorn: <offramp: Alekhine goes up & up & up in my top-10 list every year.> Where will he be in 11 years?>

I'm afraid he'll be back at the bottom again.

Nov-23-13  RedShield: Do what they did at the recent launch of the Indian space rocket:

  plang: 3..Bg4 is rarely played abd seems to give White a pleasant edge. After 5..e6? Black's position is already bleak.
