Once: I wonder if there is a little more to the pun than meets the eye.
This game was played in "Praha" in 1943. In other words, Nazi occupied Prague. Presumably this is from the Prague Chess Tournament of 1943 which was won by Alekhine. Ruzena Sucha came last in the tournament.
As much as I love the game of chess, there is something incongruous about sitting down to a chess tournament in the middle of a war, and in a city where the Nazis are deporting Jews to the concentration camp.
Incidentally, googling the tournament, I found this account by Pachman:
"After [my win over Foltys], the great Alekhine invited me to his room. He got me to demonstrate my game, made a few comments, praised me, and then showed me his game, explaining several hidden combinations and also accepting praise. Mrs. Alekhine was there with her two cats. I had to hold one for a bit and the wretch scratched me, but it was a marvellous evening, something in the nature of a high-point in my life so far.
Alekhine took to inviting me in every day. We always analysed something and I soon discovered that it was no good disagreeing with him because it made him angry. So I just listened reverently to what he said. He invited me for coffee, too. In the Luxor cafe, it seemed, one could get real coffee under the counter – an expensive luxury for which I had to foot the bill. Alekhine, I discovered, made a point of not paying. Usually there was someone with him, otherwise he simply walked out of the restaurant. The waiters knew him, so they sent the bill to the tournament director. I learnt also from a very annoyed Mr. Kende that by threatening to walk out of the tournament, Alekhine had extracted a 5,000 crown addition to his original 40,000 crown fee. Luckily I was saved by an unexpected patron. He was Mr. Stork, a trader and landowner, who presented me with an enormous salami in recognition of my achievement, plus an invitation to lunch every day at his house. The meals were better than any I have eaten even in peacetime, and by doing without supper I was able to pay for Alekhine's coffee."
The game itself is a typical Alekhine rout. Maybe the shame and pity is that it was not played in different circumstances.
