  GrahamClayton: Picture of the simultaneous exhibition in which this game was played on the 4th of March 1933:

Nov-10-11  LIFE Master AJ: Great crush by Alekhine. (Thanks <Dom> for pointing this game out.)

  Stonehenge: Alekhine gave three simuls in Surabaya 1933: March 04, March 06 and March 20.

  NM JRousselle: I noticed that Alekhine had White on all boards. I hate it when the guy giving simuls gets White in all the games. When I played Larsen years ago, he had the guts to take Black in half the games.

  perfidious: Standard stuff for many exhibitors, though my first encounter with Walter Browne was in a 1972 simul and I had White.
Feb-18-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: I agree that Black's position is dismal, but what exactly were they resigning about?
Feb-18-14  zb2cr: Hi <Cheapo>,

Looks like Black has to maintain protection of d8 to me. If, say, 18. ... Qh6; 19. Qd8+, Kf7; 20. Qe7+, Kg6; 21. Nf4+ forces Black to sacrifice the Queen.

Not sure what the right move is if 18. ... Qe5.

Sep-12-15  Danoboston: As to zb2cr's comment, "Not sure the right move is if 18Qe5"

If 18 Qe5, then 19. Qd8+ and:

A. 19Nf8; 20. Rf1, Bf5; 21. Qxa8
A1: 21cxd4; 22. Rxf5
A1a: 22Qd6; 23. Qe8, h6; 24. Rxf8+, Qxf8; 25. Ne7+, Kh7; 26. Qxf8, h5; 27. Qf7 with mate next A2: 22Qxe4; 23. Nxf5, h5; 24. Nde7+
A2a: 24Kf7; 25. Nd4+, Kxe7; 26. Qxf8+, Kd7; 27. Rf7+, Qe7; 28. Qxe7+, Kc8; 29. Rf8# B. 19Kf7; 20. Nf3
B1: 20Qh5; 21. Ng5+, Kg6; 22. Nf4+, Kh6; 23. Nf7+, Qxf7; 24. Qh4+, Qh5; 25. Qxh5# B2: 20Qd6; 21. Rf1, Kg6: 22. Nh4+
B2a: 22...Kh6; 23. Nf5+ wins the black queen B2b: 22Kh5; 23. Rf5+, Kg4; 24. Qg5#

There are other, similar, possibilities. Each of them results in white winning the black queen and/or forcing mate.
