|Mar-25-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Alekhine really flew off the handle at Tenner's king|
|Aug-31-09|| ||Xeroxx: O Tenner baum O Tenner baum
Wie treu sind deine Blätter!
|Oct-16-09|| ||perfidious: This game never took place-see Reinfeld's 100 Instructive Games of Alekhine for the actual continuation.|
|Oct-16-09|| ||whiteshark: Here is their 'real' game: Alekhine vs O Tenner, 1911|
|Oct-16-09|| ||Cercatore: very nice queen sacrifice!|
|Oct-16-09|| ||newzild: <Minor Piece Activity: Perhaps a new variant of chess could be created, in which games are composed competitively (perhaps according to a randomly chosen set of preset rules, i.e. game must contain Bxh7+ sack, should be under 25 moves, must end with ...Kh3, etc.) Whoever comes up with the most beautiful game in the eyes of the chess public wins the competition. Sounds sort of weird I admit, but I think the idea is interesting. At the very least it'd give would-be liars something constructive to pour their creative energies into. >|
I agree! I had exactly the same thought yesterday after playing through this pre-arranged draw (Cramling and Lopez are married). My thought was this: if I was going to compose a pre-arranged draw with the missus, I'd concoct a brilliant sacrificial orgy culminating in perpetual check, rather than a boring symmetrical yawn...

|Oct-16-09|| ||badenbaden: "There are at least a dozen Alekhine games where the moves have been either altered or omitted by Alekhine over a period of time."
Alekhine era un poco presumido y le gustaba echar un poco de "Colonia" a sus escritos... ¡ Nihil obstat!|
|Oct-16-09|| ||Benzol: <badenbaden> You might find <Calli>'s collection of interest. See Game Collection: Meine Besten Gefälschten Partien|
|Oct-16-09|| ||Marmot PFL: This game looks suspicious (outside of a simul). Any decent player would analyze 10...Ne5? and see that it lost.|
|Oct-16-09|| ||badenbaden: Thank you, Benzol. Es verdad: las mejores colonias se sirven en frascos pequeños...!|
|Oct-16-09|| ||Sem: A great chess master, but a pathetic mind.|
|Oct-16-09|| ||ajk68: This game is actually a game I showed Alekhine after seeing it on the Chessgames website. I will bring a scorecard of it with me in my time machine tonight.|
1907, 1911, 1921 what's the difference?
I'll be lucky if I hit early last century!
|Oct-16-09|| ||tpstar: This one came around Tenner eleven times during the Pun Contest. Someone realized Tenner rhymes with "tenor" and then someone else tried to improve on the idea and so on. Maybe it was all the same person. The pun is especially clefer for implying a composition; a poster may have saved them the treble, but then such speculation is very bass.|
Alekhine's fans laud him for saving these beauties and they tend to overlook any ethical misgivings. His detractors rightly admonish him for publishing false gamescores as a form of cheating.

|Oct-16-09|| ||WhiteRook48: great combination. Pity he didn't find it|
|Oct-16-09|| ||badenbaden: Sem: A great chess master, but a pathetic mind.
Da que pensar, no?
|Oct-17-09|| ||Sem: <badenbaden: Sem: Da que pensar, no?> badenbaden, does that mean: it makes you think? I would be interested to know what you mean.|
|Oct-19-09|| ||kevin86: Legal mate:variation 796,correct?|
|Aug-28-10|| ||Lil Swine: there's legal mate variations, i like the real deal better|
|Aug-28-10|| ||Lil Swine: how do you find out variations of the legal mate?|
|Sep-10-10|| ||hstevens129: 14...Kg5 15.Be3+ Kh4 16.g3+ Kh3 17.Be6+ Bg4 18.Bxg4#|
|Nov-23-10|| ||thomasdoss: 14...Kg5 15.Rf5+ Kh6 16.Be3+ Nf4 17.Bxf4+ Qg5 18.Bxg5# (0r)
14...Kg5 15.Rf5+ Kh4 16.Bf2+ Ng3 17.Bxg3#
if 13...Qd6, then legal mate???
|Apr-08-11|| ||bolek88: if 13,,,,Qd6 - white has two pawns more, but it's less elegant :)|
|Apr-08-11|| ||bolek88: 14...Kg5 15.Rf5+ Kh6 16.Be3+ g5|
|Jun-08-11|| ||sevenseaman: When O Tenner played 10. Ne5 I was positive he was going to be given the Q for a trophy from the game.|
|Jun-08-11|| ||aliejin: Real or not, a beatifull
