|Apr-12-04|| ||fred lennox: After 22 b3 black's position is superior. The d and f pawn inhibits whites mobility. His knight is not well placed. 22...Bf8 idea is to strengthen his position giving Alekhine time to strengthen his. ...Bd8 is more forceful. 29...Qd6 may be the weakest move of the game, he no longer threatens mate. 29...Ng4 is more forceful. Curious play from Bogoljubow. Perhaps overconfidence could make him too complacent at times. |

and now the decisive blunder was <51...exd4??> and Alekhine took the chance with <52.Rxe7!>
Rybka is suggesting 51...Rxd4 52.Bxd4 Rxd4 53.Rc7 Kf6 54.Rxe5 Bd5 55.Rexe7 Rxd3 instead; about =
|May-07-08|| ||chancho: <Under the circumstances,the chess world reacted with something less than jubiliation when it was announced that Alekhine's next title defense would be against Efim Bogolubov again. The match was regarded as little more than a giant exhibition by all, including Alekhine himself, who said such things as this in My Best Games of Chess, 1924-1937, in his notes to the 4th game:>|
<As White was not threatening anything there was no reason to delay matters. 29... N-N5! would have won at least a Pawn by a still dominating position.>
<This game - more than any other - proves how useless from the sporting point of view was the arrangement of this second match, and at the same time explains my indifferent play on a number of occasions. I felt sure that Bogolubov was no longer able to take advantage of the opportunities my play might present to him, and - very unfortunately for the general artistic value of the present match - the score 7 to 1 after the twenty-second game fully justified my sanguine outlook.>
|Jan-15-12|| ||achieve: <Jess> I think you might mean <Villingen>, a town beautifully situated in the Black Forest area (Schwarzwald) in Germany... Just one vowel change. I know of this famous retreat because a famour recording artist, Hans Georg Brunner Schwer, recorded Oscar Peterson's best work there, in his recording studios in the 60s-70s.|

Thanks so much for the correction, which I got in time.
Here is the post, now with new proper spelling, thanks to you:
"Played in <Villingen>, 11-12th April."
|Jan-15-12|| ||achieve: <Jfq> <well met> Always glad to lend a hand, and if I may say so here I am impressed by your research work of late, no doubt inspired by your at least doubled Chess History liberry following some deliveries to the Fischer Vancouver Household recently :) Hope all's well overthere.|
