Mar-17-05  Runemaster: Alekhine really didn't want to resign!

Good play by Engels, though. After move 26, he has an extra pawn but a lot more work was needed to win.

Jul-10-05  popski: Indeed, good game by Engels! He managed to solve all those sneaky and nasty traps.

  vonKrolock: A very complex and difficult Game...

<22.♗g4> Stronger than 22.♘e4, after which Alekhine could play 22...♘c4!? (with some dynamic compensation for the threatened ♙ loss)

<22...♕f6> If 22...♖e5, then 23.♗f4! etc

(hey, I beat once a guy that beat Engels in an IT... Engels beat Alekhine - I never imagined I was so strong... lol)

Apr-17-07  TrueFiendish: On that subject, log onto the site below and work out how close you were to beating the greats. My "Kasparov number" is 4--that is, I beat Fred Flatow, who beat Ian Rogers, who beat Lev Psakhis, who beat Kaspy!!

Apr-17-07  chessamateur: I once beat a guy, Lew Hucks who beat Robert James Fischer so my number is 2! By the way I just happened to play through the above game very fast, and I think I may have given myself a headache!

  vonKrolock: Yrs, I see - much of the South-American numbers there originated from a Kasparov defeat to Pablo Ricardi in 1992; for Fischer it would be also possible to find a lot of '2' or '3's, due to his many defeats in the years 1959 and 1960 in argentinian and chilean tournaments (heedful that Fischer was a teen then , but he also played fewer Games than Kasparov at all, that's undeniable)
Feb-04-11  ozmikey: Is the score of this game correct? Did White really miss 64. Bg3+?
Jun-28-11  BobCrisp: No, <Alekhine> played 63...Ke7. Correction submitted.
Dec-16-13  The17thPawn: Ha! Love seeing AAA beaten by a lowly IM. He must have hooked himself up to the alcohol intravenously after losing this one:)
