  PizzatheHut: I can't understand Alapin's thought process with 25...Rxb2. All I can figure is that he must have missed 27. Qxe5. It's odd that someone of Alapin's caliber would miss a move like that. Regardless, I enjoyed the game, in particular Tarrasch's technical ability in converting his advantage in the endgame.
Jan-09-05  Calli: No clue. Alapin must have had a hallucination. Then he follows with 33...d5? which loses the a pawn. He needed to play Re5 first which allows him to protect the a pawn (a5) AND capture White's pawn on f5. With a pawn for the exchange, he might have some drawing chances. As is often the case, it is hard to recover from a blunder psychologically. .
