|Mar-11-03|| ||kostich in time: Arare example of Alekhine playing the Sicilian,and playing it pretty well. |
|Mar-11-03|| ||drukenknight: These guys are playing at a really high level of course you can always count on Bogo. to make a mistake:
25 Nc2 kicks the Q, looks a little stronger.
gee what was wrong w/ 37 Rh1 Ke8 38 Rh8+ Kd5 39 Nxd5
|Mar-20-12|| ||offramp: Rather surprisingly, this game has been immortalised as an oil painting: http://www.jmrw.com/Chess/Tableau_e...
Well worth a look!|
|Mar-20-12|| ||AlanPardew: At least the board's round the right way.|
|Mar-20-12|| ||Penguincw: Alehkine really knows how to attack. In the final position, black is threatening mate on g4, and even if white can prevent that, then he will force exchanging queens on d2, which would allow that pawn to turn into a new queen.|
|Mar-20-12|| ||Calli: The artist showed a fine understanding of the game by illustrating Bogo's maroon square weakness.|
|Mar-20-12|| ||catlover: That note on move 1 was surprising to me. I had no idea that Alekhine (or Bogoljubov) had been in a POW camp.|
|Mar-21-12|| ||offramp: Alekhine had a radio hidden in the coffee pot.|
|Feb-08-13|| ||justin2seo: oh god!! Alekhine,my favourite, genius!!!|
|May-17-13|| ||cristoff: impressive...to play blindfold a game like this|
|May-17-13|| ||JimNorCal: <catlover>: "in a POW camp".
Well, the players in the tournament were not soldiers. I think it was more of a detention camp for civilians.
No doubt most of the players were of military age and would have joined the army if allowed to return to their homes.|
|May-17-13|| ||perfidious: <catlover>: The Russian masters who had played in Mannheim were interned at Rastatt, so that what <JimNorCal> states is correct-they were not prisoners of war.|
