Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-13-09  Autoreparaturwerkbau: After dozen moves black built a shaky fortress. Alekhine then nicely finds the f7-weakness.
Jun-17-11  dull2vivid: After 17...BxB white is lost. The combination is flawed. The thing is the psycological pressure of such a blast; it is, though, illusory.

  FSR: What the heck is Newt HS - a high school for amphibians?
Jun-18-11  aliejin: The registration of a
simultaneous game (could even be a
blind) always be taken with
the correction of the settled, the order of the moves etc especially those from long long time
Feb-24-12  Whitehat1963: Good to see Newt's high school get crushed.

But, boy, does Newt look good for his age!

  Phony Benoni: From a simul held at the City Club of Boston on December 17, 1923. Alekhine scored +35 -2 =3, including two wins played blindfold. His losses were to Kenneth Ormsby Mott-Smith ( Alekhine vs K O Mott-Smith, 1923) and J. Hewins; while draws went to Charles E. Norwood, A.W. Daniel and Sigmund L. Putzman. (American Chess Bulletin, December 1923, p.181.)

This game was published by the ACB in the January 1924 issue, p.5, though no forename or initials are given for Newt.

  keypusher: Maybe "Newt" signifies that he's one level up from fish. But what a game by Alekhine!

  Calli: But after 17.e5?, old Newt can take the bishop! After 17...Bxg5 18.Qf5+ Ndf6 19.exf6 Nxf6 20.Qxg5 Rce7 and AA can't escape the pin with Bc8 next.

!7.Bd2 or Be3 was better.

  MissScarlett: There are so many Alekhine simul games misattributed as 'classical' that a piecemeal approach seems insufficient. A special task force should be assigned.
