Apr-02-06  jamesmaskell: To clarify, I meant Alekhine was 18 here...

  Phony Benoni: Even at this early age, Alekhine shows himself to be tournament savvy by twice taking the opportunity to repeat moves and gain time on the clock. Note how 25.Nd5+ was not a triple repetition since the position had changed when White captured a pawn on c7.

  jessicafischerqueen: <Alekhine's> first appearance in the Master Section of the <DSB Championship>. He finished shared 7th, <Schlechter> won the event.

<Alekhine> played the event in some discomfort:

"Alekhine, who had an acute inflamation of the ankle joint, needed for a while to be assisted into the tournament hall, where very conscientiousy, he played with his leg supported in an elevated position..."

<Wiener Schachzeitung> 1910 pp. 347-8
