  plang: 6..f6?! is almost never played as after 7 Bd3 or 7 Qh5+ White gets a dangerous initiative. After 7 exf?! Black had active play. Alekhine thought that Maroczy should have played for the initiative with 14..b5 rather than playing to win the f-pawn which gave White counterchances. Alekhine provided detailed analysis showing that White has a powerful position after 22 Bg6! (he felt Black's best defense would have been to sacrifice the exchange with 22..Ne5). Yate's 22 h6? allowed Maroczy to close the kingside eventually winning the h-pawn and giving Black a winning advantage.
