Yep it was <Alekhine>, Gold Medal on first board.

1. Alekhine, Alexander FRA 13 18 75.0

<Rubinstein> garnered the Gold Medal on first board a year earlier at the Hamburg Olympiad with a staggering 88%!

Thanks <ughaibu> though for your post, I'm working off one source here (Skinner and Verhoeven's "Alexander Alekhine's Chess Games 1902-1946), which is reputable, but I doubt it is invincible>

Jan-15-12  ughaibu: Okay, thanks for the details.
Aug-26-14  ssitimefill: Moves 17 through 19 are recorded in a different order in "Alexander Alekhine's Best Games of Chess" (1996).

In that source we have 17 ... Nb3 18 Qf4 Rc6 19. Bg5.

Sep-25-14  FredGambit: The Guess-the-Move Par score is 13 in this game; I scored 37.

I'm not a strong player (USCF 1600) and I typically score around par in GTM, give or take; par should be set higher for this game. Or I just got really lucky.
