Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-03-09  totololo: totololo: White could not keep the bind on the black squares to develop the attack. Black unbinded develops the attack on the white squares with an exchange sac.

Pure Alekhine!

Nov-28-11  iamdeafzed: In the final position, there doesn't appear to be any adequate defense to the threat of Bxf3+, as Rd3 fails to Qf1+, forking king and rook.

18...d4! was a very clever way for Alekhine to open the diagonal for his bishop. 19...Qb4, which pinned white's knight to his queen, made sure the bishop didn't get traded off.

Jan-25-12  iamdeafzed: Also, Rd3 fails because Qf1 is checkmate. There's that reason, too. It looks like both the f1 and f3 squares are weaknesses and white can't parry both here in one move.

Rd1 (the only option I see that doesn't lead directly to mate) fails to Bxf3+, Qxf3, Qxf3+, Kg1, Qxd1+, and white's an entire queen up.
