Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-27-11  chillowack: I wonder if Bogolyubov might have been drunk in this game?

He hangs three(!) pawns in quick succession--surprisingly weak play from a man who had played a World Championship match just two years previously.

Therefore I suspect possible inebriation.

  wordfunph: from Chess Review 1936..

<Even Bogoljubow had to laugh at the final position. He said in his inimitable German, "Anyway, I made him get into time trouble.">


Oct-17-12  Petrosianic: <surprisingly weak play from a man who had played a World Championship match just two years previously.>

You're presupposing that he was picked as a challenger because he was deserving, rather than because he was beatable, and, more importantly, that he wasn't Capablanca.

  perfidious: <chillowack> There was this view from Alekhine, to wit, as posted on the CG page of the 1934 match:

<....The match was regarded as little more than an exhibition by all, including Alekhine himself, who said such things as this in My Best Games of Chess, 1924-1937:

'This (fourth) game - more than any other - proves how useless from the sporting point of view was the arrangement of this second match, and at the same time explains my indifferent play on a number of occasions.'>
