  Phony Benoni: My source (<Alexander Alekhine, games 1902-1922> in the Chess Stars series, edited by Soloviov & Khalifman) indicates that the game was awarded to Alekhine after Black's 33rd move when Urussov withdrew from the tournament. That would mean the remaining moves are analysis.

Any other sources?

  Calli: Skinner & Verhoeven also give 33 moves prior to the withdrawal. Source is Alekhine's own notebook. Additional info:

AA's opponent is given as "N. Urusov" Spelled with one "s" like the Urusov Gambit.

The event is Shakhmatnoe Obozrenie Correspondence Tournament No. 16

The game began Sept 2, 1905 and ended July 23, 1906 (Gregorian).

  Phony Benoni: <Calli> Thanks for verifying. I'll send in corrections for this game and Alekhine vs Urussov, 1905.

  Calli: The games apparently had no official result. Shakhmatnoe Obozrenie never published a crosstable, but Alekhine constructed a table in his notebook and left the Alekhine-Urusov spot blank. Also, S & V do not give "1-0" type results in the game scores either.

Just thought I'd make a simple thing complicated. :-o
