  whiteshark: The only Dane, that ever won a game against the Great Al. Al.
Oct-04-12  sfm: A fine game. White seeks initiative in the centre, but black fights it off and the White´s weaknesses become unsurvivable.

I like 62.-,Qd8+!, after which most people would have resigned. But not Aljechine. I have much more respect for people who resign much too late that those resigning a bit too early. The will to fight is a hallmark of almost all the greatest players in history.

  Bishoprick: I have the will to fight, but alas! Not the talent win :-(

  profK: White had the better of it but alas you gotta win them. Black kept hanging in there. We don't see enough of the Worrall.
Oct-04-15  The Kings Domain: Another example of a game that starts out nondescript but picks up in the end. Nice win by Nielsen.
