Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-17-02  SEVEN: When you run after a woman you must never stop!
Dec-19-02  Sabatini: This is true if she is willing to be caught. Otherwise it is better to give up right away.
Jun-03-04  pawn2E4: smmfh..........boy,if alelkine couldn't do anything else,he could sure trap a queen!!!! lol...hahaha
Nov-25-04  Bobak Zahmat: Superb queen hunt! If the lady is running just follow her till the end!
Apr-02-05  fgh: Alekhine beats a opening variation which is favored by patzers in bullet games.
Apr-05-05  Theoryhack: I think there are other versions of this game which quote a slightly different finnish. But its cute, and still theoretically important.
Jul-18-09  totololo: "I prefer to go with you Alexander !" - said Schroeder's Lady
Aug-07-09  jmboutiere: 4....Nf6 +0.43; 4...Bg4 +0.67
11....Qb6 +0.60;11....0-0-0+1.99;
12. ...Nd5 +2.01; 12....Qb6+2.52;
13....Qa6+2.53;13...Qb4 +4.45
Mar-08-11  swr: 11...O-O-O?? seems to lose immediately. After 12. d5 Black must give up a knight with 12...Nxd5 to avoid further damage, if my analysis is correct.

  GrahamClayton: 8...c6 was necessary, giving the Queen an escape route along the a5-d8 diagonal.
Dec-14-14  TheFocus: Sorry. This was a blindfold exhibition, not a clock simul.
