Feb-11-02  knight: Alekhine's 21.Nd4 Threatened to occupy f5 with the knight.Black's ...Rfd8 was not a good defence as 22.Rg3 left him unable to cope with the double threat of Nf5 and Qxh6. Breyer's 22...Bxe4 was easily refuted by Alekhine. One suggestion is 21...Bc8 retreating the bishop,but it is hard move to make.

  beatgiant: <knight: One suggestion is 21...Bc8 retreating the bishop,but it is hard move to make.> Yes, that is hard, because white can reply 22. Nc6 forking queen and rook.

By move 18, things already look tough for black. But maybe he can try to ease the pressure by 18...Qc5, offering to trade queens.

Jul-10-04  Calli: Perhaps 21...Qe5 22.f4 Qh5
Oct-07-04  sneaky pete: If 21... Qe5 22.Rg3 .. preventing .. Qh5. "22.Rg3 Bxe4 23.f4 .. winning or 22.Rg3 Nxe4 23.Re3 f5 24.f3 Qf6 25.Qe1 .. etc"(Rudolf Loman in <De Groene Amsterdammer>).
