Nxf7 $5 {A correct sacrifice according to Alekhine. However, there is a more convincing first move for White; the accurate course begins with Ke2 after which the Knight sacrifice will occur with increased effect} (19. Ke2 $1 -- 20. Nh7 -- 21. Nf6+) 19... Kxf7 {The first Knight sacrifice was good enough, but this second one is certainly not.
