|Aug-07-05|| ||Whitehat1963: A great endgame!|
|Aug-23-05|| ||woodenbishop: Incredible game. Nice performance by Tartakower.|
|Sep-29-05|| ||prinsallan: Beautiful endgame! Not very often you see Alekhine beaten this way.|
|Sep-29-05|| ||prinsallan: Another gem of endgames in which Alekhine beats Capa himself... Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927|
|Sep-29-05|| ||bridgepro: good morning:-) instead of 18.castles, how about 18.NxBP R(orK)xN,19.QxPch leading to a virulant attack. Any thought on this?|
|Sep-29-05|| ||sfm: Sometimes we see players giving up too early. For sure you can't say this about Aljechine in this game.
It looks like 31.d5 is a mistake, losing a pawn. Maybe 31.Ne5 ?|
|Jan-18-06|| ||Confuse: This is just my speculation, but starting from 18, 18. Nxg6, fxg6 19. Qxg6+ Ng7 20. Qxh6 - is trading a knight for 3 pawns a bad idea? im just wondering : )|
|Jun-02-06|| ||paladin at large: With 29. Qg3 Alekhine staves off disaster on h2 but thereby creates the black passed pawn which stares down the unhappy white bishop on b1. With that in mind, Alekhine's prior defensive setup was faulty, with both remaining minor white pieces away on the queenside doing nothing special.|
|May-16-07|| ||KokeFischer: 18. Nxg6 seems a playable move:
h6 and h7 are weak and White could obtain more chances.
|Jul-08-08|| ||amateur05: 43. Bxe4 doesn't make sense|
|Jul-18-09|| ||Tophie1984: After 74. Rh3 the game was adjourned. Alekhine's game was obviously lost. But he arrived to the continuation and saw his opponenet sitting on the board. The aribiter came and opened the envelope. Alekhine saw the sealed move and before the aribiter moved in on the board Alekhine resigned and left the areal frustrated.
Tartakower smiled and explained the strange behaviour of his opponent to the spectators: You see that Alekhine doesn't like to lose. He resignes when there is absolutely nothing to hope for. Today he came to find out if I've written down an irregular move, I've travelled away or passed away this night!|
|Jun-10-11|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: Beautiful endgame. No doubt Alekhine lost some sleep over this one.|
|Jun-10-11|| ||aliejin: "Beautiful endgame. No doubt Alekhine lost some sleep over this one."|
On the contrary
One of the Alekhine carteristicas was an exceptional
ability to react to a defeat
|Jun-10-11|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: By smashing all of the furniture in his hotel room?|
|Jun-10-11|| ||aliejin: "By smashing all of the furniture in his hotel room" |
I think these comments are appropriate
for gossip programs jetset
not for people who analyze / enjoys chess
And if you prefer to enjoy chess, how many
happy hours gave us Alekhine and his art?
Please, no more stupid
|Jun-10-11|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: <akiejin> Have you been diagnosed yet?|
|Jun-10-11|| ||NM JRousselle: Alekhine should have resigned about 20 moves earlier.|
|Jun-10-11|| ||aliejin: I do not know why
, talking about alekhine ,
all we are freud , from, lacan etc.
Instead of analyzing and enjoying chess
concrete and honestly !
|Jun-10-11|| ||perfidious: <NM JRousselle: Alekhine should have resigned about 20 moves earlier.>|
There could have been an earthquake, you know! (not that UK really gets them, but that's another story, lol)
|Jun-10-11|| ||aliejin: <NM JRousselle: Alekhine should have resigned about 20 moves earlier.>|
Tartakower was famous to play up to last pawn !
I think this is irrelevant ....
|Jan-15-12|| ||jessicafischerqueen: http://www.olimpbase.org/1933/1933i...
From Folkestone Chess Olympiad, <Tartakower> playing first board for Poland hands gold medal winner <Alekhine> his only defeat in the tournament.
<Tartakower> garnered the silver medal, scoring 9/14 for 64.3%
|Jan-27-13|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: Alekhine's second and last defeat in the history of the Olympiads|
|Feb-21-15|| ||RookFile: I agree with those who say Alekhine dragged this out. Certainly after 58....Kxg7 the result is not in doubt any more.|
|Feb-21-15|| ||suenteus po 147: Tartakower was a world class player. God knows I love him. But he wasn't immune to blunders in the endgame, especially against players of Alekhine's level. The World Champion was just making especially sure that his opponent would take home the point.|
|Feb-22-15|| ||RookFile: Take the position after 61....a5 for example. Smyslov and Levenfish talked about the grouping of rook and two pawns in their book on rook endings. Basically, that is an irresistible force. White's king isn't even nearby. Do whatever you want, and slowly, like an iceberg moving through the ocean, one of those pawns is going to queen.|
