Mar-12-05  aw1988: Pretty.
Jan-20-06  lemgelo: A thing of beauty.
Dec-05-06  sambo: How legitimate is this opening still? I mean, is there a book refutation yet? If not, how come it isn't played more often?
Dec-06-06  TrueFiendish: Alekhine's certainly hasn't been refuted. It's playable but against most tastes.
