Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-12-05  Darklight: This is not one of Dr. Alekhine's better games.

Ironically, Bogoljubow defeats Alekhine here in the same spectacular manner that Alekhine defeated countless players.

Dec-04-05  waddayaplay: How did white win this? Did black resign after making his move?
Dec-04-05  aw1988: The point is that Re7 nets the queen.

  OhioChessFan: Whew, Alekhine must have had a few too many when he played this game. I'm still trying to figure out Rb8.

  Calli: Its interesting, Bogo should have played 24.Re7 but maybe didn't see that 27...Qxf8 28.Qe6+ wins. Therefore he plays f4 - I think in order to play Qf5+ when Alekhine plays the K to h7.

Ironically, it was Bogoljubov that may have had to much to drink. Bogoljubov was in amazement how Alekhine can go to a bar before a game with him and still wipe him off the board, so Bogo tried the same thing so the story goes and actually won the same day both drunk! I don't think this was the game though, it was there WC match this happened.

  Honza Cervenka: AA lost this game already in the opening and especially after 12...Nf6 black was toast. 12...Bxf2+!? 13.Kh1 Ne7 seems to be somewhat better though white has an edge after that as well.
