Oct-10-04  Knight13: On move 31 white gave up the rook for the knight exchange was sad. Bad loss for Alekhine.

  sergeidave: Was he blindfolded?
Jan-12-05  iron maiden: When was the last time you saw a world champion blunder both an exchange and a piece within the space of ten moves?
Jan-12-05  WMD: Information on this blindfold exhibition can be found here: Alekhine vs NN, 1925.
Dec-31-08  WhiteRook48: Hard for someone to keep cool when you're fighting against the Champion and he's got the bishop pair to boot... and then he loses one bishop with no chance for a pawn promotion. Great play by Black.
Mar-24-09  WhiteRook48: 34 Be4?
Mar-21-11  Tigranny: Isn't 34.Be4 a blunder because 34...Re6 35.Bxb7 Rxe1 results in a loss of another bishop?

  ChessHigherCat: Black followed the right strategy for a blindfold simul of maintaining maximum complexity. and maybe it's even an advantage to have 2 knights since their moves are harder to calculate than bishops. I wonder how many boards there were and how much time Alekhine had per move?
