  Honza Cervenka: I would like to know, what white was planning to play after 13...dxe5, as 14.Bxh7+ clearly doesn't work. After 13...g6 white got superior game, and he was very close to win but he let Bogo to slip of the hook in the end.
Mar-15-18  ChessHigherCat: <Hi Honza! What about this?: 13...dxe5 14. dxe5 Ncxe5 15. Qe4 f5 16. Qd5+ Kh8 17. Nxe5! (threatening a smothered mate) Nxe5 18. Qxd8 Raxd8 19. Rxd8 Bxd8 20. f3 Bh5 21. Bxf5

Not spectacular, but it looks even

This is fine for white but 15...f5 is not necessary. Instead of that 15...g6 looks better.

Sep-22-18  TheFocus: Alekhine in <Hastings 1922> tournament book gives after 13.e5: <The beginning of a dangerous and persistent attack. Black cannot at once take the Pawn for after 13…dxe5 14.Qe4 f5 15.Qd5+ Kh8 16.dxe5 Ndxe5 17.Nxe5 Nxe5 18.f3, he loses a piece. White is threatening Bxh7+ immediately.>
