  Benzol: "Alekhine in the Americas" gives the following note at the end 'One of the White pawns can be promoted without the help of the King, e.g., 33...Ke8 34.a5 Kd7 35.a6 Kc8 36.b5 Nc7 37.Bxc7 Kxc7 38.b6+ etc'.

The "Allies" btw were Cartier, Marechal and Winfrey.

<33...Ke8 34.a5 Kd8 35.a6 Kc8 36.c6 1-0>

The source is the Montreal paper <Le Devoir> (10.12.1923), given by Skinner & Verhoevn.
