Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-17-06  Bobak Zahmat: Incredible King side assault by Alekhine, White is totally doomed.
Feb-13-15  waustad: The olympiads were a much tougher go for a decent but not great player in those days. The tournament was a round robin, not a Swiss, so even the lower rated teams played everybody. Now days the real massacres mostly happen in early rounds, though Swiss pairings can be fickle at times.
