|Dec-17-02|| ||Kulla Tierchen: Unlikely to appear in Alekhine's collections. |
|Dec-17-02|| ||ughaibu: Certainly not those he compiled himself. It might be an interesting theme for a book, "Worst Nightmares Of The Best". |
|Dec-17-02|| ||Kulla Tierchen: Perhaps it is in that book about Alekhine's Agony by Moran that has been discussed recently. I would like to get my hands on a copy, it promises to be full of moo ha ha! |
|Dec-19-02|| ||Kulla Tierchen: This is from a 30 board simultaneous in November 1943. Alekhine won 24, drew three and lost three. Cima did not play badly; he beat Alekhine again a few days later in a 10 board clocked simultaneous, Alekhine vs E Cima, 1943, in which Alekhine had eight wins, a draw and the lone loss. Not bad considering that Alekhine was already more dead than alive. |
|May-02-05|| ||tpstar: This is the only database example of 5. a3 cd!? 6. axb4 dxc3. White's Queenside Pawn cluster proved so weak that I wonder if 7. Qxc3 would improve, or else forego the g3/Bg2 plan and play for e4 instead. Note White resorted to unnatural moves like 13. Be3 & 15. Rd4!? and eventually lost a Pawn, although AAA got great play for the exchange. Nice game by Black.|

|Mar-13-08|| ||herby rawley: 1,d4-nf6, 2c4-e6, 3.Nc3-Bb4 4.Qc2-c5
5.a3-cd 6.axb4-dxc3 7bxc3-Qc7 8.e4-d6
9.Be3-b6 10Nf3-Bb2 11.Bd3-Nd2 11o-o
I opened a game like this as b. Then I saw Cima. 5..Qc7 Imade up to force e4 and clog the wB it worked I drew the game a pawn up in a superior position to insure a team victory...whaddya think of b, in general???? I was always comfy
I intend to play this way again unless I get a reason not to
|Oct-02-09|| ||Julian713: 20. Qxf3 was the first real mistake. Otherwise the game could have been an easy draw; but moving the Q exposed a brutal fork that left Alekhine no choice but to fall behind in material. At that point all Black had to do was play solid defense and pounce at just the right time...which Cima did. Excellent win, even in a simul.|
|Nov-09-15|| ||TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in Oviedo, Spain on November 9, 1943.|
Alekhine scored +24=3-3.
