Kibitzer's Corner
May-30-03  suenteus po 147: Great pin at the end! White must lose the knight or more! I wish I was this sharp in my end games.
Jan-30-05  trespetit: I find it funny that Mieses had White against Alekhine in every single one of their five lifetime encounters. I think it's a tiny sign of Alekhine-like "contempt" to play an opening that is a little dubious at best. I'm not referring to the Alekhine's Defense but rather his chosen variation. Several historical games show that after 3 e5 Nfd7 4 e6! Black is already in a slight positional rut. Mieses, unfortunately, "chickened out." In a famous game with Rubinstein, Yates essayed 4 f4 and also lost.
Feb-15-05  chessmanelnino: is this the same game as the one two down on the list? Search Alekhine, opening Alekhine, first player wins
Apr-01-08  Knight13: Alekhine attacked the kingside, knowing that Mieses can do little. Good strategy!

<I think it's a tiny sign of Alekhine-like "contempt" to play an opening that is a little dubious at best.> NOT TRUE! Alekhine is a completely sound opening!

Jun-17-11  dull2vivid: Yeah, case in point, Fischer's win with it over Spassky in the WC match.
Mar-12-13  Ulhumbrus: 13 Qxf6? lets slip any advantage on White's part by exchanging queens. Instead of this 13 Qe4 occupies the centre and on 13...e5 14 d4 is possible as Black's e5 pawn is pinned
