Dec-20-14  TheFocus: An off-hand game played in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on October 10, 1921.
Jun-07-18  SirChrislov: In case you weren't aware of Alekhine's feminine gestures when moving, watch 2.c4 of this game at 1:30 just don't fall asleep with the music:

Jun-07-18  JimNorCal: That movie is intriguing!
Alekhine's pinky-finger extension is so delicate, then the way he puts his hand under his chin is quite precious.

It's wonderful to have the chance to see historical figures in action. AA is quite aware of the surroundings while Euwe is 100% focused on the board (or perhaps shy about the camera).

Jun-08-18  WorstPlayerEver: <SirChrislov>

Thanks for the footage! Alekhine speaking!

Mar-01-21  Whitehat1963: A fun example of the Opening of the Day!
Sep-10-22  Sirius69: 12)----axb4?? is the mistake leading to a loss, while 12)----Ng6!! leads to a potential win with correct play.
