Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-30-07  Dr. Siggy: In 1933, Alekhine played 32 opponents blindfold simultaneously in Chicago, with the excellent result of +19=9-4. This one of the draws - and what a draw!

With victory at sight, the former World Champion ruined almost everything with 16. Rxd7? (instead of 16. Nc7+ or 16. Rd4); but he managed to save himself with one of the most spectacular perpetual checks ever given in the History of (blindfold) Chess: 20. Nxd5!! Bxd4 21. Bxd4!!! Qxe2 22. Nf6+ Kf8 23. Nxh7+ Kg8 24. Nf6+...
