|Apr-15-07|| ||fm avari viraf: A nice tactical game by Alekhine. Bogo tried his best but couldn't save the day.|
|Sep-02-07|| ||PAWNTOEFOUR: i thought this was a nice game ...i'm not too familiar with C25 - C28....thought i'd just stop by|
|Oct-13-07|| ||xeroxmachine: Nice game from Alcohine, the "evans gambit in the vienna game" felt really refreshing!|
|Jan-10-09|| ||tommy boy: "Alcohine"... show some respect please|
|Feb-05-09|| ||YoungEd: I don't have a board in front of me, but wouldn't 15. ...f6, trying to blunt White's battery on the f-file, have worked out a bit better? It's true that White would have 16. d6+, but I don't see that this wins immediately. In the game, once White plays Qxf7, Black is cooked.|
|Feb-05-09|| ||whiteshark: <15.Bf8!!> is really a phantastic move. I wonder how many moves <ahead> Aljechin <had seen> this k.o. move.

|Feb-05-09|| ||whiteshark: Let me guess: Pavlov's dog reacting on a conditioned <Bogoljubow> stimulus.|
Subsequent off beat wisdom contains the word <clown>.

|Feb-05-15|| ||visayanbraindoctor: When playing blindfold games, IMO it's best to keep things closed and positional as one can easily lose track of the pieces in an exploding tactical middlegame. Yet these two masters went straight into tactical middlegame right out of the opening. How in the world do they keep track of the imaginary pieces and all the possible tactics in their mind's eye?|
Many of Alekhine's blindfold games are so highly tactical that they defy belief. Even in the Amber blindfold tournaments, where the players had a much easier time by being allowed to see a board, I have noticed that they tend to avoid highly tactical openings and middlegames. Not so Alekhine, the supreme maestro of blindfold chess.
