May-18-05  chess man: A nice example of opening up the game and also an example of when the Queen is the better piece compared to two Rooks.
Oct-07-05  AlexanderMorphy: it's quite incredible...alekhine never lost to the alekhine defense lol
Oct-07-05  azaris: Alekhine/DeGosseli vs Tartakower, 1933
Jun-27-06  FENfiend: impressive knight fortress around 10. Nc4. Alekhine was certainly innovative.
Sep-05-09  WhiteRook48: who said Alekhine couldn't refute his defense?

  Marmot PFL: One of 28 simulteneous blinfold games. I find that almost unbelieveable that anyone could have such a memory in addition to visualizing that many positions.
Jun-17-11  dull2vivid: Move 20 and 21 are lessons for those willing to spill blood.
Sep-19-11  Cemoblanca: I've just played the opening moves and it's amusing to see how Alekhine gets the center immediately under his control:

7...Na5?! 8.Ne5!

9...Nd7?! 10.Nc4! Nb6?! 11.Bf4! Nd5?! 12.Nxd5! and after 13.0-0 as we can see all pieces are right in the battle and black??? ;0) I felt sorry for the lady in black and after 16...exd5?(?) the game was already lost (maybe sooner, because I guess 15...cxd4 was better). The move 20.Ra6! was just incredible! It was certainly what I call a cat and mouse game. ;0) Very impressive Mr. Alekhine! RIP!

  TheFocus: From the blindfold simultaneous exhibition in Paris, France on February 1, 1925 at the Petit Parisien. Alekhine scored +22-=3-3 to set a new record.

The opponent here was a team from Les Echecs du Palais Royal.

See <La Strategie 1925, pg. 27.
