Alekhine takes Manhattan (and Staten Island too)
Compiled by Calli

This spectacular event was held in the Drill Hall of the 7th Regiment Armory. The exhibition was on fifty boards against 200 opponents in teams of four.

"Beginning actual play at 3:30 o'clock in the afternoon, Dr. Alekhine was busy at his task until 4:05 Wednesday morning, at which time an agreement was reached to the decision in the fiftieth game to be finished. The result was that members of the Columbia College Team, the last to finish obtained a draw to which they were entitled on the merits of their position. At the close of the marathon, it was found that the champion had won 30 games, drawn 14 and lost six." - Herman Helms writing in American Chess Bulletin, 1932, pages 157-158

Alekhine took only one intermission of about twenty minutes, ate only one sandwich and had some coffee refreshment.

Game 15. Chess Correspondence League of America was comprised of Zenas Leslie Hoover, John W Brunnemer, Dr. Edwin M. Foote and John Hodder.
