|Nov-24-04|| ||kostich in time: In my best games of chess, Alekhine says, of SanRemo 1930,( Iquote from memory) "25 years of experience against the Yugoslav grandmaster have taught me to beware of 'tactical tricks" after I had strategically outplayed him.". This game features such a'tactical trick"..Bb7!!. This game helped cost Alekhine first place at Semmering 1926, while Vidmars excellent third,(One of several Vidmar thirds) helped make him, briefly, acontender for the world title, and got him invited to New York 1927 |

|Dec-27-10|| ||paladin at large: Vidmar, in his memoirs, wrote that he would never forget Alekhine’s reaction of agony after he, Vidmar, played 52…f5. In noticeable lightly violent agitation, and without taking his eyes from the chessboard, Alekhine began fumbling in his paper bag next to the board, trying to find a cigarette; Alekhine’s hair fell forward over his tortured forehead. Vidmar held out a cigarette of his own, which Alekhine was unable to take because he did not lift his eyes from the board. Vidmar stuck the cigarette in Alekhine’s mouth. Alekhine continued to fumble in his bag in vain, without looking, for a match. Vidmar then lit the cigarette for him. Alekhine drew heavily from the cigarette two, three times, visibly relieved at the nicotine. Finally, Alekhine determined to complete the remaining moves, a shadow of his demonic, untamable self.|
An eight hour battle and beautiful game by Vidmar.
|Dec-27-10|| ||paladin at large: According to Vidmar, Alekhine completed the game with a blunder, 59. Qa4?? Nxa4, whereupon Alekhine resigned.|
|Dec-27-10|| ||aliejin: I Think alekhine with 44 a5 !
gets a deserved win
|Sep-22-12|| ||brankat: Funny, I thought Dr.Vidmar was fully deserving of winning this great game.|
|Sep-22-12|| ||aliejin: This is a great game of chess ....
. both players showed a very high chess ..... But Alekhine played a chess more proactive (this is a constant in Alekhine) and 44 a5 have given the natural result ....
without diminishing the great Vidmar resources
