Oct-04-04  Knight13: This game should have drawn from move 20 by Three same moves. And same as from move 46. This game is a Rule Break.
Oct-04-04  ughaibu: Repetition isn't an automatic draw, one of the players has to claim a draw.

  Phony Benoni: The games of this match are exciting (if not always accurate) and deserve to be better known. Alekhine won by a score of 7-3 (no draws!), but Levitsky was clearly not intimidated by his advesary; he could have claimed the two draws by repetition mentioned above.

Assuming, of course, that the triple repetition rule was the same in 1913 Russia as it is today.

  wwall: 80...Kc5 may be the losing move. Perhaps best is 80...Kb5 and hiding the king.

Instead of 83...Kf5, a little bit more resistance comes from 83...Ke3.

Instead of 85.Qxa4, White probably can win faster with 85.Qd8+ Ke6 86.Bd5+ Ke5 87.Qh8+, winning the queen.

Dec-14-14  TheFocus: Match Game 6 played in St. Petersburg, Russia on March 7-10, 1913.

Alekhine won the match by a score of +7=0-3.
