Aug-22-05  sandyobrien: interestingly transforms into an albin
Jul-20-06  whatthefat: Another flat performance from Alekhine at "Los Angeles 1932" (to go with Alekhine vs R McBride, 1932). I can only assume they were simul games, where he played unusually provocatively, and as a result, came unstuck.
Aug-16-06  floriboy: It is strange to me that the reply 4...e5 is so seldom played in Caro-Kann/Panov. Does anybody have an idea why?
Mar-30-09  fasting: I was wondering the same, why not 4...e5!?

  Benzol: This game is from a simultaneous exhibition given on the 1st of September 1932 at the Los Angeles Athletic Club. Alyekhin's opponent here is Dr Moses Scholtz. Apparently this was his second victory over the World Champion for he also won a game in 1929.

Sep-01-12  Luigi Bros: 17.Qb5 in better, because protect the center in e5, and any case equal take b7, always close to Nc6.
Mar-14-15  Everett: This is an Albin Counter sort of, with no c7 and e2 pawns.
