Oct-03-10  BobCrisp: This game score was thought lost for many decades until it turned up, so to speak, decades later in the unpublished notebooks of <E.S.Tinsley>, once chess correspondent of <The Times>.

The above score is the one given in Skinner & Verhoeven's Alekhine book, but Fiala in <Quarterly for Chess History, Spring 1/1999> gives an additional move for each side via:

13.Bxe5 dxe5
14.Qe2 c6
15.Ne3 Qa5+>

So the positions coincide again after 16/17.Qe1 except for the pawn on f7(S&V) or f6 (Fiala). Makes very little difference to the rest of the game, anyway.

  MissScarlett: The Scotsman, Tuesday, May 25th, 1926, p.3:

<Alekhine adopted the Budapest defence against Reid, and by strong play secured an early advantage. The game wore down to a bishop and pawns ending, which was cleverly won by Alekhine on the 34th move.>

Suggests the Fiala version is correct.
