  meloncio: Yes, but Arturo Pomar was only 11 years old in 1943. He was then a "child prodigy".
Mar-16-04  Hidden Skillz: i understand that..but alekhine had a nice open game..n its so hard to stop him in any kind of way..

  bumpmobile: Could Alekhine have won a rook instead of a knight on move 20 with 20. ♖e8 ♔h7, 21. ♕xf7?

  meloncio: <bumpmobile> 21. ... Qxa1, and checkmate.

  bumpmobile: <maloncio> Right! That's why he's Alexander Alekhine, and I'm sitting on my comoputer at 4 in the morning.
May-15-04  Dudley: The opening transposed into the Goring gambit, which is one of the most dangerous double king pawn attacking systems, later a specialty of the strong British player Penrose. He did very well with it until defeated convincingly by Smyslov. Its a good opening at lower levels however.

  TheFocus: From a simultaneous clock exhibition in Madrid, Spain at the Circulo de Bellas Artes on October 23, 1943.

Alekhine scored +5=3-0.
