  wwall: Better is 8.Bd5 Rb8 9.Qxd4.

After 11...c4, Black wins. Alekhine, commentating on his own game with Yates in the New York tournament of 1924, annotated this position as a draw after 11...Be6 12.Qc6+ Bd7 13.Qd5 Be6, etc.

Jul-04-13  Zugzwangovich: Alekhine's head was misplaced. Here we have a case where emulating Capablanca (Steiner-Capablanca, Budapest 1929) was not a good idea.
