Noiseless explosion on e3 made by Alekhine

This is very useful and original pattern to know. It is from the game Reti – Alekhine, played in Baden-Baden tournament in 1925. While built up a fortress of pawns e2, f2, g3, and h2 to protect his king (favourite Reti’s position) and hoped to survive. But black was able to find very nice tactical stroke in (at first sight) equal position.

The stroke was black’s 26th move Re3! It is silent move, no taking nor threatening opponent’s piece. But the rook is simply untouchable because of mate in two.

I hope you will enjoy this as well.

  1. Nice Alekhine masterpiece again. Alekhine’s games are usually masterpieces. Gues the guy is genius. I read somewhere that he was an alcoholic

    Deji: Yes, his games are really good! Alekhine had some problems with alcohol. As far as I know it was at the end of his life – during WWII and after that.
