  oao2102: I believe that this variation of the Ruy Lopez is also known as the Bronstein variation

  Honza Cervenka: Quite surprizing mating final in position with reduced material.
Mar-05-08  Knight13: Yeah that was really sneaky. Didn't see it coming. White must've missed ...h5!!
Dec-15-08  YoungEd: I read somewhere (sorry, but I forgot where) that Alekhine played a wider variety of "irregular" defenses to the Ruy than most masters. He does a good job here, though after move 9 you wouldn't think his position was anything special.
Jul-05-09  WhiteRook48: no one ever talks about two rooks on the <eighth> rank

Oct-31-18  anjumskhan: This man called Alekhine truly liked to complicate matters and prefer un-common positions. This game is just that.
