  TheAlchemist: <morfishine> That pronounciation is almost certainly incorrect, since it was played in Banja Luka (Bosnia & Herzegovina), I would hazard to guess Vasic (Vasić) is not German but Bosnian (in 1931 it was part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia).
Nov-09-14  morfishine: <TheAlchemist> I always choose the wrong pronounciation guide. Interesting the founder of Vlasic pickles, Frank Vlasic, came from Poland and 'Vlasic' is pronounced in the normal way, as we heard in the commercials (as far as I can tell!)
Nov-09-14  PaulLovric: It is pronounced as Vasich
Nov-09-14  Ratt Boy: <TheAlchemist>: If you're going to criticize "pronounciation", you might want to spell (and pronounce) "pronunciation" correctly. Just a suggestion.

As with nudism, it's always the wrong people who self-criticize.

Totally agree, and thanks for the mental image.

  TheTamale: All made possible by the pointless 5) ...h6.

Anyway, it's always fun to see someone getting slaughtered quickly while playing the French.

Aug-18-15  nilanjanasm: I can't find the add to game collection in the mobile version. Where is it
Oct-16-15  TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in Banja Luka, Yugoslavia at the Balkan Chess Club on January 10, 1931.

Alekhine scored +27=5-3.

See <Sahovski Glasnik 1931>, pg. 157.

Mar-02-16  hypercorby: Clean game, Alekhine seems very relaxed. I don't know why I love that game. If Vasic could practice more on chess Vasics, I couldn't make pun with him. Thank you, Vasic.
