Oct-20-03  francescog: What happened to Alekhine??? Who was this Mr. Morelli?? maybe it was a simul? ...
Oct-20-03  drukenknight: it looks like 19 Ne5 would be stronger, moving the K walks into a pin a pin that will prove bad.
Jul-30-04  SSurku: 27 Bd5??
Jul-30-04  WMD: Blindfold simul game. (+6 =2 -2).
Nov-16-04  InspiredByMorphy: Impressive game by black. Why does everybody downplay it? I like blacks opening strategy. <drukenknight> 19.Ne5 Qd5 <SSurku> Black threatens 27. ...Nb4 28.Qb2 Rxf3 Therefore better would probably be 27. Rxd8+ any continuations for black? <WMD> Thanks for the info.
Jun-26-05  ArturoRivera: how much cojones! this guy has to be the greatest amateur and the one who did not had respect for alekhine at all!, i would have fell ofended if i had been alekhine,. In fact, he defesated alekhine in a truly alekhine way!
Jun-26-05  ughaibu: So much for studying "theory", this is the only example of 3....Qc7 in the data-beast.
Jun-26-05  ArturoRivera: Even for a simul, the guy was brave, i wouldnt think of playing this gambit if i had to face a player even of 2300 in a simul, and he was facing Alekhine!!, the man was brave, no doubt of it
Jun-26-05  aw1988: <ughaibu> Data-beast- certainly.
Jun-26-05  Anastasia: 26.Nxa7
Jun-26-05  aw1988: Nxa7 Kxa7 and then?
Jun-27-05  Anastasia: 26.Nxa7 Kxa7 27.Rxb6 etc.
Jun-27-05  Shams: <Anastasia> 27...Kxb6 28.Rb1+ Ka7 (maybe Kc7 is better though) and what?
Jun-28-05  Anastasia: jeez louise do i have to do everything for you people?
Jun-28-05  Shams: <Anastasia> heh. just this once, ok?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Today's Guardian has an article on a similar gambit, 1.e4,d5; 2.exd5,c6; 3.dxc6,e5?! which Bennett and King dismiss as unsound. Maybe it is, but when up against the great Alekhine, why not give it a go?

Apr-23-12  Ulhumbrus: A sensation. Alekhine, no less, loses to the Irish gambit
Jun-08-15  TheFocus: This game is from a blindfold simultaneous exhibition in Milan, Italy on March 25, 1923.

Alekhine scored +6=2-2.

See <L'Italia Scacchistica 1923>, pg. 97-98.
