|Sep-29-04|| ||fasting: I believe this is the first Alekhines defence, played by its inventor!? |
|Sep-29-04|| ||suenteus po 147: Of all the opponents to spring it on, too, Samisch must have been one of the most appreciative. |
|Sep-29-04|| ||Kean: Well at least it was played in Budapest where it is said this defense was popularized. A very clean game, his inventor must have it analyzed well. I wonder if this openings have not came inspired by apparently bad amateur moves. |
|Oct-05-04|| ||fasting: some-how I can imagine that Alekhine was sitting there in Budapest, in his military uniform wanting to try out his new defense - and since Samisch was that eager to exchange his checkers, the game ended up being just another boring draw - but still Alekhine's first 1.e4, Nf6! |
|Jul-28-05|| ||PinkPanther: Why the most appreciative, suenteus?|
|Jul-29-05|| ||Calli: By the time White plays 11.Qd2, the opening just looks like a French exchange variation.|
|Sep-03-05|| ||suenteus po 147: <PinkPanther> Samisch, as I understand it, was a major positional player at the time, and this is one of the most positional defences I know.|
|Apr-10-06|| ||Paintbucket: Alekhine only used the opening in big games only around 20 or so times. You'd think that the inventor would have used it more often, seeing how strange it is.|
|Apr-10-06|| ||Calli: Alyeckie didn't invent it , but claimed that he introduced it into master practice. Wrong! Nimzowitsch vs Albin, 1905 where at least Nimzo played e5 which a lot of Alekhine's opponents did not.|
|Apr-01-08|| ||Knight13: Alekhine's supposed to be living-on-the-edge, but Samisch's 4. Nxd5 blew it.|
|Aug-18-08|| ||The Rocket: "Alyeckie didn't invent it , but claimed that he introduced it into master practice. Wrong! Nimzowitsch vs Albin, 1905 "|
The game you are referring to is not alekhines defence(though Its listed as it just because of the starting move...) it is actually tranposed french opening, and after nf6 black retreats his knight so I dont concider it a real alekhines defence even in its early stages... its like playing a nf6 to 1 d4 and saying that its kings indian but then play e6, d5.
You claim that Alekhine didnt invent it but you dont mention who did... which brings me to the conclusion that you have really no idea what you are talking about.
|Sep-19-09|| ||WhiteRook48: how did 4 Nxd5...|
|Jan-20-12|| ||jessicafischerqueen: According to <Eward Winter> this is the first time Alekhine used <Alekhine's Defence> in a tournament- http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/...|
However, the earliest published game in which he used it appears to be a consultation game in <Zurich Aug. 27, 1921> against A. Donegan, E. Müller and O. Zimmermann.
The game doesn't seem to be in our database but Alekhine won the game; the score is given in Winter's article- http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/...
