  GrahamClayton: Black could have liquidated into a drawn endgame with 50...♘xe6 51. fxe6 ♔g7, followed by 52...♔f6 and 53...♔xe6.

50...♘h7? allows Alekhine's King to advance and support the passed pawns.

Apr-10-11  Eduardo Leon: "Manso", pronounced "MAN-so", is the Spanish word for "tame". While "Manseau" is actually pronounced "man-SO", I don't doubt for a second Alekhine found this Manseau guy rather tame, especially in the endgame.

  TheFocus: From a blindfold simultaneous exhibition in Montreal, Canada on December 1, 1923 at the Nationale Athletics Association.

Alekhine scored +12=5-4. This broke the previous blindfold record held by Pillsbury at 20.

See <La Presse>, December 15, 1923, pg. 52.
