Dec-23-12  Conrad93: 11 losses and 4 draws? That's just sad.

  perfidious: Nearing the end of a three-year period in which he did not play, after his match with Euwe at the end of 1931, which came to an end with his participation at the Hastings event of 1934-35.

No idea whether he received an invitation to this tournament, although I am sure there are those who would be able to answer that question. In view of the poor relations between Alekhine and Capa following Buenos Aires, it would not be at all surprising to learn that Capablanca was not invited.

  thegoodanarchist: Flohr finished ahead of Bogo, Lasker and Nimzo!

Flohr is underrated, maybe

  MissScarlett: <After the tournament, Lasker said: "Alekhine's attacking genius has no equal in the history of the game".>

Ask Gabodon.

Oct-24-17  zanzibar: Looking at <AZquote> I only found this Lasker quote mentioning genius:

<I have known many chess players, but among them there has been only one genius - Capablanca!

Emanuel Lasker>

Of course <AZquote> doesn't mention sources.

Oct-06-18  goser: Despite the loss to Euwe, Zurich 1934 should be listed among Alekhine's greatest tournament achievements alongside with San Remo and Bled: 12 wins in 15 games of such a strong tournament was an impressive achievement!
