Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-22-05  WMD: The game score is incomplete. Incredibly (unless there was time pressure), Alekhine required Bogo to show him the win.

82...Bd2 83.Kf5 Ke7 84.Bb5 Ba5 85.Bc4 Bc7 86.g5 Ba5 87.a4 c3 88.Ke4 Bd2 89.Bd5 Kf8 90.Kf3 Ke7 91.f5 Kf8 92.f6 1-0

Aug-05-06  HansJochen Peters: There is a nice story related to this game. It is said that after playing 92.f6 Bogoljubov bent over to Alekhine and whispered: Now you have the choice between resigning and continuing and thus amusing the spectators. Whereupon AA immediately resigned. - Sorry, bur I donīt remember the source.
Aug-05-06  ughaibu: But the game finished on move 82 and it wasn;t f6.
Aug-05-06  ughaibu: Okay, I've now read WMD's post, I get the picture.

  Calli: Perhaps a little less sweaty would be 53.Rc3! and if Bxf4 54.Rf3 Bg5 55.Rxf7+ Kc6 56.Bxe6
Apr-06-09  WhiteRook48: after 92. f6, why are there two 1-0 marks on the gamescore?

  Phony Benoni: <WhiteRook48> When you won a game from Alekhine, you were entitled to two points. Indeed, Reuben Fine once wrote that you had to beat Alekhine three times to win a game from him: once in the opening, once in the middle game, and once in the ending.

Seriously, the earlier kibitzes indicate that the original game score was incomplete, ending with 82.Bxd7 1-0. Apparently, when the last ten moves were added, another "1-0" was inadvertently inserted as well.
