Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-23-06  Rama: Sr. Perez plays boldly, as is his habit. F J Perez vs Alekhine, 1943

Spassky's quiet 9. ... d6, wins a pawn but black's position after 11. ... 0-0, does not make a good impression.

13. ... Bxf5, is necessary to preserve the integrity of the K-side. 14. ... a3!, is brilliancy inspired by desperation -- he could've played Qd7 at this time.

After 17. ... d5, what went through white's mind? Does 18. Nxd5 ..., posess a hidden threat that I am missing? Or did Perez just think it does? Perhaps he thought the g-pawn was pinned.

The final position is a piquant example of the double-attack.

Nov-23-06  Petrocephalon: Perhaps when white played 18.Nxd5 he was intending 20.Rd1 Bxf6 21.Nxf6+, missing that the discovered attack fails b/c of his back rank weakness.
Apr-13-14  zydeco: White needs to play 18.Bxe7 Qxe7 19.h3 c6 and black probably has some advantage.
