Oct-01-05  lopium: ahahazz! I have to understand that crazy game!!
Jan-17-06  syracrophy: The threat is 41...f6+! 42.Rxf6 Re5+ winning the rook and is not enough 41.Rf6 Re5+ and wins the rook.

  GrahamClayton: 34...♗g5 is necessary. 34....g6?, planning 35....h5 loses the Queen to 35.♘f6+.

  perfidious: The variation beginning with 5.d4 was a speciality of John A Curdo, but he always played 8.c3 instead. For psychological reasons, I even tried the gambit against him on two occasions--the only two he allowed, for he never met 1.e4 with 1....e5 in any of our subsequent games.
Sep-02-16  ToTheDeath: Fantastic play by Alekhine! Pins galore. This game is a gem.
Oct-28-20  Gaito: Alekhine annotated this game in his book on his best games (1924-37). His final comment was, after 40...Kg7: "Black's next move would be 41...f6+! followed by 42...Re5+ winning the rook". Apparently he overlooked that White can avoid the loss of a rook by the simple 41.Rf4, whereupon 41...f6+ 42. Kg4 avoids the loss of the rook. But then, instead of 41...f6+, Black can exchange rooks and go to the pawn ending with an extra pawn. It would not be difficult to win such a pawn ending for someone like Alekhine.

  perfidious: Alekhine was probably analysing the games sans voir.
