  Honza Cervenka: Wow! This one looks like Alekhine himself was playing white side here. In fact, I wonder if he really played black here...
Premium Chessgames Member
  Calli: Yes, he did play White. In fact, he "lost" the simul scoring 4½-5½. Don't worry Alekhine fans, this was a difficult "clock simul" against good players. White was Sigurd Clausén of the Malmö SS.

  Calli: Oops! I meant Alekhine really did play Black in this game. The score here is correct. Sorry, previous post was before my first cup of coffee.

  Honza Cervenka: <Calli> Thanks. I have thought that it was played in a simul with clocks but I was not sure which colour had Alekhine here and white's play resembled Alekhine's aggressive style so much that I was in doubt a bit for a while if the score is correct. But it is correct for sure. Nice performance of Mr. Clausen.
