Alekhine-Magic on the Chessboard!

Alekhine-Magic on the Chessboard!

45 | Amazing Games

I would like to introduce you to a game, played by the 4th World Chess Champion, Alexander Alekhine. The game was played in 1925, when he was 33 years old. Two years later, he won the World Title against Capablanca. Alekhine played this game in his usual tactical style, bringing all his pieces into the attack, and when the moment arrived he made a final decisive blow.

How did Alekhine take advantage of this dubious use of time?

How should white get a strong attack going here?

Is it time to strike yet?

A beautiful crush by Alekhine, who showed in this game yet again what fantastic tactical abilities the great Champion had. This game comes from the Chess Evolution Weekly Newsletter. For more information about Chess Evolution go to another site.
