Mar-19-05  Whitehat1963: Sitting world champion takes it on the chin from a nobody using the Opening of the Day. (I'm guessing this was a simul or blind simul?)
Oct-23-05  wasspwot: Yes that was my thought too. Then several people apparently used it against Alekhine the following year and all lost!

  Phony Benoni: This was indeed part of a simulataneous exhibition, played in Syracuse on Armistice Day, 1932. Alekhine played 39 players over-the-board and 1 blindold, losing only two games.

Black was Thomas A. Jenkins (1901-1993), who wrote an article about this game in the February, 1975 issue of Michigan Chess titled, "How I Beat Alekhine (With the Help of 39 Other Players)." It's too long to quote in its entirety, but I do like the final note, after 37...Rh1+:

<"Alekhine, in consternation, uttered a mighty Russian oath and swept the pieces from the board.">

  Benzol: The other game that Alyekhin lost in the Syracuse simultaneous display that was played on November 11th 1932 was this one against R J Guckemus

May-16-18  Vibov: Alekhine has a slight (varying) advantage up to 35. Red2, which is a mistake, and then 36. d6 further worsens things (engines prefer sacrificing the exchange on e4, although the continuation is still losing).
