Feb-12-04  niom: my god, so many sacrifices in one game! what a genius!
Feb-12-04  WMD: Skinner & Verhoeven give the opponent as Mendlewitsch, the occasion, a 35 board simultaneous display and the location as Liege, which, I believe, is in Belgium.
Feb-12-04  TrueFiendish: 35 boards at once! Man! Alex wasn't drunk that day...
Dec-07-04  Camus: 27. ... Qe8 (to protect f7) 28. Bxh7 Kf8 29.Rg3 and black cannot avoid mate on the next move. In the played line this wouldn't have worked because the could have escaped on e8 allowing the bishop to cut the rook check.
Aug-31-05  EmperorAtahualpa: Yes, Liège is in Belgium, quite close to my place of birth (Maastricht).
Aug-31-05  EmperorAtahualpa: And by the way.....this game is astonishing!!!
Apr-13-06  MorphyMatt: Nice!
Apr-13-06  suenteus po 147: This is almost a "kitchen sink" game considering how much Alekhine threw at his opponent.
Jun-05-07  zev22407: How would white win after 26)..e6xd5?
If 27)e4xd5 Bxd5 ,I can find only a draw.
Mar-19-08  Samagonka: How could an experienced player of this level play 19 Nd7 instead of Ng4??? He deserved the punishment!
Mar-20-09  WhiteRook48: tremendous sacrificial game
Sep-28-09  WhiteRook48: he was down two rooks in the final position... wins!
