  Sneaky: Was there some reason why Alekhine was forced to repeat position at the end of this game? I think he just wanted the draw.

  Sneaky: To answer my own question: I suppose that the black rook & knight were threatening to invade the white camp after the bishop trade. Why put up with that? Just call it a day...

  Phony Benoni: <Sneaky> Another consideration is the crowded playing schedule at this Olympiad. S Rosselli del Turco vs Alekhine, 1931 was played later the same day, so Alekhine may have been pacing himself against the more difficult opponent.
