Jul-04-04  iron maiden: 32. Qxc3 runs into a pretty swallow's tail mate: 32...Qh4+ 33. Kf3 Qf4#. White has to give up a piece to save his pinned queen.
Jan-16-05  mdz: The fact that it was a simul shows: Alekhine was not at his best at all. W should play 30.ef Nf4 31.Kf2 b5 32.Rxd8 Rxd8 33.Rd1 to fight for a draw. Also, better 21.Be1 Nhf4 22.Bf1 with almost =. Finally, B had a much quicker win with 31...Qh4+ 32.Kf3 e4+ 33.Qxe4 Rxc3+ 34.Bd3 Rxd3+ or 32...Rxc3 33.Bd3 e4+ 34.Qxe4 Rxd3+
Jan-16-05  Minor Piece Activity: You've met Tal? You lucky man. This is a very energetic encounter, looks almost Nimzowitschian with the fantastic struggle of the knights against bishops. Why not 21. Bf2 in the game? Was Alekhine afraid of Nhf4 22. Bf1 Qa5 23. Rdc1 Ba4 24. Qb2 or something similar? Maybe an earlier improvement is possible?
Jan-16-05  Calli: <mdz> Yes, but a draw in a simul would be like a loss to AA. He is still playing for a win at that point. <Minor> If you play over AA's exhibition type games, he often used them to test out various opening variations.

BTW, playing Black here is
"A Lee Jones of Leonardtown,Md, whom we understand was once a member of the Yale team" - the Washington Post

Jan-16-05  Minor Piece Activity: <Calli> Did you click the link and see if this "Lee Jones" is different from the other ones in the db?
Jan-16-05  Calli: He is different. To make it clearer, I could write it "A. Lee Jones". Lee being a middle name. Even if he did not use the "A", he would not be playing Kaspy and Kramnik in junior tourn 55 years later!
Jan-16-05  Minor Piece Activity: True, but I was just checking to be sure! =)
Oct-28-15  TheFocus: From a simultaneous exhibition in Washington, D.C. at the Jewish Community Center on August 29, 1933.

Alekhine scored +27=0-1. Two games were played blindfold.

See <The Washington Post>, September 10, 1933, Second Section, pg. 9.
