  Marius: why not 24.Qxe7+ Kg8 and 25. Qg7 # or am i wrong?
Aug-16-04  xqdashi: Marius, you are right. Perhaps the score is messed up? e.g. if black had played Re8 instead of Rd8 or something like that then Qe6+ would be more plausible.

  Benzol: <Marius> <xqdashi> Just had a look in both 'Alekhine in Europe and Asia' and 'Alexander Alekhine's Chess Games, 1902 - 1946' and the gamescore is given as above. Seems strange but Alyekhin might have missed the quicker win as it was a simul.

  Marius: perhaps he has a little drunk...

  cu8sfan: <perhaps he has a little drunk...> From what I read about Alekhine he was never just "a little" drunk... (-:
Jul-19-05  EmperorAtahualpa: Re8 indeed seems to make a lot more sense.

  chancho: Missing a mate in two? This is so very Unlike Alekhine. He may have been doing a Blackburne style simul. and failing at it.
Apr-10-11  GrahamClayton: If Black had played 20...♕xd5, Alekhine would have probably seen 21.♖d1 ♕c5 22.♘xg6! hxg6 23.♗f6.

  MissScarlett: It's possible Black played 23...Rd7 instead.
