  whiteshark: Don't know why, but I always thought this was the last round game and that Nimzowitsch had to win it to get tie with Alekhine.

Could someone with the <New York 1927> tournament book please check this. Thx in advance !!

NY1927 crosstable:

Dec-04-08  paladin at large: <whiteshark>< I always thought this was the last round game > No, this was a tenth round game. They also met in the last round (20th) with the same pieces, but that game was a draw.

  whiteshark: Thank you for your efforts, <paladin at large>!

(When I looked at the crosstable Aljechin and Nimzowitsch were finally only separated by one point - and a must win situation would have been quite theatrically. Well, it's the facts that count.)


Feb-02-12  RookFile: Vidmar castles queenside, and not even the slightest pressure is put on his king.
Jun-28-12  Old King Cole: I have the 1924 book of the New York City international tournament, at the Hotel Alamac (on Broadway and 71st), annotated by Alekhine, but not the 1927.
