A. Alekhine - A. Nimzovich; 

Bled, (Round # 6); 1931


Alexander A. Alekhine (2815) - Aaron Nimzowitsch (2775) 
Bled (6), 1931

[A.J. Goldsby I]

One of the great Master's prettiest wins. 

1. e4 e6; 2. d4 d5; 3. Nc3 Bb4; 4. Nge2!? dxe4!?;

5. a3 Bxc3+!?; 

[ 5...Be7!; ("=") ]

6. Nxc3 f5;
('?!')  Maybe - '?'  
This move, majorly weakening the entire complex of King-side 
squares, is a move Black should [probably] do without. 

It is also [more than likely] the source of most of Black's future troubles. 

Alekhine now plays extremely energetically, and virtually gambits 
at least 2 pawns.
7. f3!! exf3; 8. Qxf3 Qxd4!?; 9. Qg3! Nf6!?; 
Maybe Black should try 9...Ne7; as recommended by Alekhine and Kmoch.

10. Qxg7 Qe5+!?; 11. Be2 Rg8; 12. Qh6 Rg6; 

13. Qh4 Bd7; 14. Bg5 Bc6!?;  (Maybe - "?!/?") 
Perhaps Black should try 14...Nc6.

15. 0-0-0 Bxg2; 16. Rhe1 Be4; 17. Bh5! Nxh5;

18. Rd8+! Kf7; 19.Qxh5,   Black RESIGNS!!  1-0 

[ 19. Qxh5 Kg7; 20.Nxe4 fxe4; 21.Bh6+!, ("+/-") ]
