  TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in Prague, Czechoslovakia on March 29, 1925.

Alekhine scored +33=6-3.

See <Alechin v Ceskoslovensku>, game 9, pg. 5.

Jan-17-16  clement41: Marvellous game where black is absolutely crushing and gets a massive lead in development.

4 Bc4 is more promising for white (Bxd7+?! helps black develop). 5...c6 breaks white's fragile center.
7...e5! preventing 8 d4 will contain black's pieces for a long time (7...0-0-0 does the same) 15...Rd3! exploits the weak d3 square and blockades d2 thereby restricting white's pieces (like Lutt-Kérčs)
