  Karpova: From Tomasz Lissowski's <Alexey, Brother of Alekhine>


Alexey was 4 years older than Alexander and they were very close friends.

Both learned the basic chess rules from their mother Anisya Ivanovna.

Alexey was Alexander's coach and they analyzed their games together (Alexey participated in correspondence tournaments from 1902 onwards).

Alexey studied at the university of Warsaw and also got married there.

At the correspondence tournament of the 'Schweizerische Schachzeitung', Alexey scored +16 =8 -0 (see game against Duhm, 1908-1909).

Between 19013 and 1916, Alexey was the editor of the chess magazine 'Shakhmatny Vyestnik'.

At the Amateur Tournament at the All-Russian Chess Olympiad in Moscow 1920, Alexey came in 3rd.

Lissowski <Living in Kharkov in the Ukraine, however, he often participated in local chess events, and was a champion of Kharkov. He was also a notable organizer. He served as an Executive Board member of the Soviet Chess Federation (called the “USSR Chess Section”) and was Secretary of the Ukrainian Chess Federation. He gave numerous simultaneous displays and lessons in chess circles. He was also an editor of the first Soviet chess annual, 'Shakhmaty: Isbrannye partye y kombinatsye za 1926 god' and of the book 'Match na pervenstvo mira Alekhine-Capablanca', both published in Kharkov in the years 1927 and 1928.>

After Alexander's remarks about bolshevism, Alexey published a letter containing the following statement: <I reject every anti-Soviet pronouncement, irrespective from whom it originates, even if, as in this case, the speaker is my brother, let alone anyone else. I am finished with Alexander Alekhine forever.> Though Lissowski points out that Alexey, having to stay in the USSR probably didn't have much choice.

Alexey died in 1939.

  kingfu: Would we (CG) be lucky enough to have any games played between the Brothers Alekhine?

  Benzol: I would like to thank <Karpova> for finding and submitting these games. Are there any others to be found?
Jun-08-13  KlingonBorgTatar: <Karpova>, Thanks for this this page. Great contribution to our chess lore and culture.

<Kingfu>,<Benzoyl>, I found a game Dus-Chotimirsky vs Allies Moscow 1907, a QGD Tarrasch , 0 - 1 . The allies were Alexander and Alexis Alekhine and K. Issakov. Check out page 18 of Reinfeld's '100 Instructive Games Of Alekhine The Development of a Chess Genius' formerly 'The Unknown Alekhine' Dover edition.

Could this be a training consultation game between a coach and his teenage pupils?

  kingfu: First there was the KGB.

Now we have KBT! Or should we just call you Tatar?

Thank You very much for the information. One of the best things about Chess is when you play over a game that seems Modern and you find out it was played 150 years ago! And also the reverse. I like to play the Four Knights (not enough RAM for Ruy Lopez) and you can never tell what century you're in.

  Karpova: On May 6, 1926 in Odessa, an All-Ukrainian Championship Tournament ended and this were the final standings:

1-2. Marski 8.0
1-2. Werlinski* 8.0
3. Gujetzki 6.5
4-6. Schapiro 6.0
4-6. Sorokin 6.0
4-6. Trigorenko 6.0
7. Ballodit 5.5
8. Kirillow 5.0
9-10. Gordian 4.5
9-10. Lastowetz 4.5
11. Aljechin 4.0
12. Rauser 2.0

From pp. 174-175 o the June 1926 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'

I presume that this <Aljechin> was <Alexey>.

  alexmagnus: Funny how the bio here says only "died in Kharkov, Ukraine" - and nothing else. Neither details about his life/career nor how he died at 50.
