|Feb-16-07|| ||Whitehat1963: Alekhine, in his prime, gets his behind handed to him by a nobody. Was this a simul perhaps?|
|Jun-17-09|| ||ughaibu: Click on his player page, hardly a nobody. Nevertheless, does anyone know what this event was?|
|Jun-19-09|| ||chancho: The game was from a simul:
|Jun-19-09|| ||Calli: The game was part of a 10 game clock simul on 25 April 1930. Alekhine and Capablanca seemed to specialize in these difficult exhibitions where the GM must play X times faster than their opponents. X being the number of boards. In this case, the time control was 20/hr. Therefore, Alekhine had to make 200 moves in an hour. Alekhine's strategy included a quick 16 move draw against the best player, Erik Andersen. Probably a few games against lesser players were won early on, thus lessening the burden. |
AA played the Danish Olympic team plus a few others, winning 8 losing 1 drawing 1.

As played Black got a strong attacking position for his material investment. It's good strategy to take the fight to the simul giver and play for complications- who in most cases simply doesn't have the time to work out all the forcing variations.
|Jun-19-09|| ||ughaibu: Calli: very interesting, I thought the national team kind of thing had only been done by Kasparov. Do you know any more, the whos and whens, about the history of these extreme simuls?|
|Jun-20-09|| ||Calli: Don't know the history of them. I suspect that they arose out of some clubs packing regular simuls with strong players. A somewhat famous clock simul is Capablanca's 10 boards at Leningrad in 1935. He only scored 3w-4l, but the strength of the players was such that it was still looked upon as an achievement. See V A Vasiliev vs Capablanca, 1935|
