Feb-11-02  knight: Alekhine opens up the game with a couple of pawn sacrifices, he brings all of his pieces into good posts and then sacrifices two pieces against the insufficiently defended black king, forcing checkmate.
May-29-03  chimusan: just browsing through center game opening and noticed that alekhine played it quite often

anyways the move i'm looking at is 20...Ne2+
It took me awhile to figure out that Alekhine did not wisely do 21. Rxe2 because 21...Bxf2+!! which nabs the queen for black... 20... Ne2+ was black's last resort and of course Alekhine would never fall for such nonsense

overall though, this game is full of fun and nice sacs by alekhine

Sep-06-04  Impala03: Good game.... I guess. Further examination shows that Alekhine missed the easy 11.) swap of ladies followed by the Nd5 which either wins the piece or forks the K & R... However, neat mate. Its the W that counts
Jun-03-21  Sebastian88: This is the only game (on in which Black decided to the move 4...Bc5!? It was probably safer to proceed with: 5...d6 6. Nf3 Nf6 7. e5 dxe5 8. Qxd8+ Kxd8 9. Nxe5 Re8 10. Bf4 Be6 11. O-O-O+ Kc8 12. Bxe6+ fxe6 13. Bg3 b6 14. Rhe1 Kb7 ⩱

  beatgiant: Following up on <Impala03>'s interesting observation above:

On 11. Qxd5 Bxd5 12. Nd5 Kd8 13. Nxe7 Re8 <14. Rd1> indeed wins a piece, but then 14...Bxf2+ 15. Kxf2 Rxe7. In the resulting position, Black has three pawns for the piece, but White is far ahead in development and will probably be able to win a pawn soon. But it's not obvious to me that this would be a lot better than the game line.
