  GrahamClayton: 12...♘xc5 was a better move, getting compensation for play on the open c-file in return for the isolated d-pawn.

  Pawn and Two: One of ten blindfold games by Alekhine in his exhibition at the Manhattan Chess Club, the afternoon of January 19. 1924.

A crowd of 200 watched Alekhine take on a picked team of ten, selected purposely to test his prowess in this branch of the game. After playing continuously for a little less than four hours, Alekhine emerged triumphant without incurring a single defeat. His final score was eight wins and two draws.

The above exhibition details are from the booklet, "Alekhine in the Americas", by Donaldson, Minev & Seirawan.
