Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-24-14  GumboGambit: I would like to think that at the Rotary Club meeting in Albany NY, Catala played the Ruy Lopez and accidentally moved the wrong pawn after 3.Bb5, bringing the <Rotary-Albany Gambit> into the Chess world. . . . . . .But Im sure the actual explanation is even tamer.
Oct-31-15  TheFocus: From a simultaneous clock exhibition in Barcelona, Spain on January 27, 1935.

Alekhine scored +10=3-0.

See <A. Alekhine>, pg. 99-100.
