Apr-03-08  capanegra: This was a fierce battle between Alekhine and the Uruguayan strong player Alfredo Olivera. At first sight the draw agreement is not so easy to understand. I believe the continuation could have been 32.Rd8 e2 33.Rxa8 Ce3+! 34.fxe3 exd1=Q! 35.Rxe8+ Kg7 36.c8=Q Qe2+ and perpetual check.
Jan-22-09  capanegra: Alekhine played this tournament in March 1938 at the Hotel Casino Carrasco, a luxury and mythical hotel located in the cost of Montevideo. Some photos of the hotel can be seen here: http://www.montevideo.gub.uy/invers...

In spite of the fact that some of the best players of Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay participated, Alekhine won rather easily with a score (+11, =4, -0), followed by the Argentines Carlos Guimard and Virgilio Fenoglio. Here is the crosstable of the tournament: http://www.rogerpaige.me.uk/tables9...
