  GrahamClayton: One of 29 games played by Alekhine (including 2 blindfold) in a simultaneous exhibition in Warsaw on the 2nd of December, 1928. Alekine finished with a score of +19, =6, -4.
Jul-14-10  crawfb5: Donaldson, Minev, and Seirawan give the simul in Warsaw as played on 1 Dec 1928, 31 games, score as +21 -4 =6.

This particular game is from an 8-board clock simul (+4 -2 =2) played in Warsaw on 11 Dec 1928. Blass played for the Polish team at the 1928 Olympiad at The Hague.
