Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-26-05  azaris: Alekhine could also win positionally, but in this case it was not too hard with Wolf's awful bishop after 17. cxd3?!.
Mar-26-06  capanegra: 17.cxd3 was the only way for White to keep on without a heavy loss of material. Had he played 17.Qxd3, Black would have won with 17…Rxe2 18.Qxe2 d3! 19.Bxf6 dxe2. So, with 16…Bxd3! Alekhine forced Wolf to block his Bishop forever.
