May-14-04  Whitehat1963: Fork you, buddy!
May-14-04  meloncio: This game was played December 27th, 1922. It was the second Alekhine's visit to Spain, the first one in June of the same year.

José Juncosa (1885-1972) was a strong spanish player; he played many games with his favourite opening 1.c3, and using it he once won to E. Snosko-Borowsky; I will submit this game soon.

By the way, the spanish correct name of the town is Zaragoza; we don't like so many "s" together. ;-))

May-14-04  meloncio: <... he once won to E. Snosko-Borowsky ...> Nop, it was a draw.
Jun-07-15  TheFocus: This was an exhibition game, played as noted above.

See La Strategie 192, pg. 39-41.
