In this game from NY 1924, Alekhine and Reti reach an even position.  Alekhine thinks his 19...e4 is bad though the game is far from lost.  But as soon as he gets into a negative frame of mind he makes more bad moves spiraling from equality, to worse, to losing not because of his opponent but because of his own frame of mind.
