|Mar-21-04|| ||vonKrolock: Yes, Beratende in German means "allies"... the good old Bogo again performing a joke :-))... oh, its Warsaw 1941, a Nazi game, certainly whith Hans Frank as an interested kibitzer |
|Jan-21-05|| ||Knight13: Seems like the Alekhine/Allies are much better than Bogoljubov/Beratende. Good game. |
|Jan-21-05|| ||delterp: Is not 13)...QxR
14) QxQ gxB at least worth considering?
Black has eased some pressure and material is reasonably level. While black's kingside is destroyed, white will have issues releasing his king's rook.
|Jan-21-05|| ||Bobsterman3000: This game is too funny to replay. I can't stop laughing enough to analyze... |
|Jan-21-05|| ||beatgiant: <delterp: Is not 13)...QxR
14) QxQ gxB at least worth considering?>
I think Alekhine would keep attacking with 13...Qxc1 14. Qxc1 gxf6 15. Nb5! Na6 16. Nd6+ Kf8 17. Qc3 (or 16...Ke7 17. Qa3). White's probably winning.
|Jul-05-05|| ||vonKrolock: <Yes, Beratende in German means "allies"> Now is correct. "Beratende" appears also in the English <Dover> version (surely from the German version...) of L. Pachman's "Modern Chess Strategy"...|
|Aug-31-13|| ||savagerules: Incredible game if it was a real game and not another of Alekhine's fictionalized games. It may have been an analysis session with the notorious Nazi Hans Frank kibitzing thus the names Alekhine/Frank. By the way Hans Frank ended up getting checkmated in 1946 by a noose around his neck after the war for crimes against humanity when he was governor of Poland under Nazi occupation.|
|Jan-12-14|| ||RedShield: Bogo's partner was Pfaffenroth, and again Google identifies the likely culprit:|
<According to Dieter SCHENK, SS-Sturmbannführer Helmuth PFAFFENROTH was the personal adjudant to Generalgouverneur Dr. jur. Hans FRANK.>
Later, he apparently joined the notorious SS-Sonderbataillon Dirlewanger.

|Jan-12-14|| ||whiteshark: <19.Qf8+ Kg6 20.Qg8+ Kh6 21.Rxh7#> would have been even faster.|
|Aug-31-14|| ||MissScarlett: Annotating the game, V Kahn vs P F Schmidt, 1939, Alekhine prefigured this line:|
<9.Bxf6! A Russian discovery that was tried for the first time in the game Kotov-Yudovich for the Soviet Championship in 1931 [sic - Kotov vs M Yudovich Sr., 1939 ]. The key to this capture is to be found in the fact that after the plausible moves 9...Bxc3+ 10.bxc3 Qxc3+ 11.Kf1 Qxc4+ 12.Kg1 White's remaining bishop would be untouchable because of the threat of 13.Rc1. Other possibilities, such 12...Bd7 13.Rc1 Qxa2 14.Nxe6!! or 12...Nd7 13.Rc1 Qa6 14.Bxg7 Rg8 15.Bh6 etc. would immediately be disadvantageous to Black, since he would have nothing better than to refuse the astute gift, thereby admitting that his opening tactics have failed by not producing the desired effect.>
13...Qxa2 is marginally better than Bogo/Pfaffen's 13...Qa6, because i)it allows the option of 14...gxf6 (as 15.Nxc7+ is not immediately terminal) and ii)it's better placed to return to defensive duties.
These notes appeared, in translation, in Winter's <107 Great Chess Battles 1939-1945>. Unfortunately, no sources are given by Winter, but it's highly likely that they date from 1939, and certainly prior to the present game. Noteworthy that in his December 1941 notes for <Deutsche Schachblätter>, Alekhine writes of 9.Bxf6! <The point of White's play , which has been generally known since Buenos Aires 1939.>, diplomatically omitting reference to the Soviet connection.
|Nov-07-15|| ||TheFocus: Consultation game played in Warsaw, Poland at the Belvedere Palace on November 3 or 4, 1941.|
