    Black's reply is 1...Qa6. What then?

    White wins after 1.Rxb5 Qa6 (Not 1...cxb5 because 2.c6# is checkmate) 2.Bc3 when Black gets mated after 2...Qxa3 3.Rb7+ Kd8 4.Nxc6#

    Hard position... after the Queen move, is it some sort of domination move with White's bishop?

    Look for a brilliant move by Alekhine.

    Yes 1.Rxb5 is what Alekhine played. But what then after 1...Qa6

    Indeed Alekhine played 2.Bc3.  What then?

    If Queen takes a3, it´s mate:1. Rb7+ Kd8 2.Nc6# 2.If Queen a7,then Qxa7 loses material
