  Benzol: <InspiredByMorphy> <Calli> Skinner and Verhoeven give two different moves in Black's score. They give 38...fxg6 not hxg6 and 42...♖xg5 instead of 42...♖g6. If these moves are correct I don't understand 44...♔b5 and 45.♖d8. Surely 44...♖g6 or 44...♖g4+ would be better? The mystery deepens.

Btw This game was played in a simultaneous display. It was played at Semarang in the City Hall on the 8th of March 1933 and Alyekhin was up against 50 opponents.

Perhaps the following sheds a little light on events.

" started at 8:30pm and around 10pm the first loss was recorded, but by 12:00am only a few more had followed. Between 2am and 4am it became a drama, almost every round meant a victim. At half past four, after eight hours of play, Alekhine had won all the games". - Skinner & Verhoeven.
