  GrahamClayton: Apparently a contemporary account of this game has 3 extra moves. What were they?

  Benzol: "Alekhine in the Americas" gives the following note at the end 'One of the White pawns can be promoted without the help of the King, e.g., 33...Ke8 34.a5 Kd7 35.a6 Kc8 36.b5 Nc7 37.Bxc7 Kxc7 38.b6+ etc'.

The "Allies" btw were Cartier, Marechal and Winfrey.

<33...Ke8 34.a5 Kd8 35.a6 Kc8 36.c6 1-0>

The source is the Montreal paper <Le Devoir> (10.12.1923), given by Skinner & Verhoevn.

May-24-18  zanzibar: It was played <chez LaMothe>, who collaborated with Alekhine, not with the allies.

(This partially explains the non-alphabetical listing)

Remember - the house always wins.

  offramp: I'd love to know the physical layout of these consultation games.

Black's analysis must be done out loud, with the analysts speaking in notation, The opponent sits there listening to it all: he analyses in his head.

  keypusher: <offramp> When this sort of thing is done formally (i.e. not like the Morphy opera game) the team is usually in a different room with the moves being ferried back and forth, so the team members can talk freely. See M Morgan / S L Stadelman vs Lasker, 1907

Anyway, if <zanzibar> has it right there were actually two teams here, with M. LaMothe getting a chess lesson in exchange for providing the venue. I wonder how the discussion in Team White's room went. <Hey, Alex, let's play X. Huh? That loses the queen? I see. Okay, I guess we can go with your move.>

  offramp: Here is the only pic I have seen of a game in progress: http://www.thechesspedia.com/wp-con... All four are at the same board.
The most famous game is the Opera House Game. That was played in one tiny little room.
May-25-18  Timi: Look at that combination starting with 18. Qxf7+ ... Alekhine was so brilliant, incredible... normal players would probably despair because of the trapped bishop
May-25-18  morfishine: <offramp> Thats an incredible picture! Alekhine looks so stern, Manseau has that deer in the headlights look, Marechal appears to have found a winning move pointing excitedly at the board, and only heavens knows how Benny Hill snuck into the photo

LOL. Some of the names are suspicious. Marechal is the French for Marshall. LaMothe is obviously a pseudonym, like The Tick.

The name Winfrey makes one think of Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858, i.e., Opera/Winfrey.
