|Aug-14-02|| ||refutor: A refutation of this combination is listed at http://www.gmchess.com/digest/featu... |
|Oct-09-04|| ||sneaky pete: This phoney brilliancy has 2 duplicates here: Alekhine vs Van Mindeno, 1933 and Alekhine vs Van Mindeno, 1933.
Van Mindeno, a minor master in the 1930ies, has nothing to do with it, that's a mistake by Alekhine in My Best Games of Chess 1924-1937.|
The name <Hoelsder> comes from the 1993 ICE collection by John Donaldson.
A collector apparently came across this name in a notebook in Alekhine's handwriting. Since <Hoelsder> is an absolutely impossible name in Dutch or in any other language, this just proves AA's handwriting is no more to be trusted than his analyses.
The American Chess Bulletin, November 1933, gives <Hulscher>, which may be correct. <Hoelscher> (pronunciation is the same) is possible as well.
Unfortunately <refutor>s link is broken, so I can't check which refutation is meant.
Book published a refutation in 1949:
14... f5 15.g6 Qe6 16.Ne5 .. (the brilliancy in another form, as indicated by Alekhine in his notes) 16... Rfe8 17.Rdh1 Kf8 18.Rh8+ Ke7 19.Nxc6+ Kd7! with black advantage.
This seems correct, but why not 16... Qxa2 and wins?
When before posting I googled for information about this game of black,
I found http://www.rochadeuppenheim.de/test... where Dieter Meyer and Karsten Mueller claim 13... Nh7 as another refutation.
|Oct-23-04|| ||sneaky pete: For Book in my earlier post please read Böök, I just found out how to make an ö. Black in this game may have been the late H.G.J.Hölscher (1916 or 1917-2004). |

|Jul-14-07|| ||sneaky pete: The first publication of this game in the November, 1933 issue of the <Tijdschrift van den Nederlandschen Schaakbond> gives the move order 2... Nc6 3.Bb5 d6 4.d4 exd4 5.Qxd4 .. etc and the site Amsterdam. The date November 3(?) from Donaldson's <Alekhine in Europe and Asia> is wrong, Alekhine gave an exhibition in Amstelveen that day. He did Amsterdam (several locations) on November 6, 7 and 9. The <Tijdschrift> also reveals the name of the victim, it is - no big surprise there - none other than our old friend NN.|
|Jun-13-09|| ||jsheedy: To sneaky pete: 16...Qxa2 [your analysis] slows the attack, but white plays 17. b3!, stopping mate and cutting off the Q. If 17...Qa3+, 18. Kb1 and black's threats end. If 17...dxN, 18. Qc4+, etc.|
