  vonKrolock: This game was plyed in the last round, in a near table, Alekhine vs R P Michell, 1933 was in course. Actually, if Flohr had won, he would be the sole winner, half a point ahead of Alekhine, and if Lilienthal was the victor, he would share first and second places with Alekhine: The fact that the World Champion could not be the lone Tourney winner anymore was already a great sensation in the occasion - and was decided in the preciding eight round, in Flohr vs Alekhine, 1933 a game in which Alekhine missed a relativelly easy win...

An incident occurred when (i dont' remember if before or after the present Game) Lilienthal and Flohr where together, in evident joyfull and triumphant mood, when Alekhine arrived: Lilienthal had the nerve to salute him with a somewhat sarcastic compliment - Alekhine became so angry that he reportedly proferred the famous : "Lilienthal, You NEVER again will play a Tournament with me!" ... My source (quoted by memory) stated: 'Maybe this incident could be forgiven, but in fact they dont' met again in individual encounters...' <subject to confirmation>

  Phony Benoni: <von Krolock> As far as I can tell, Alekhine and Lilienthal did indeed never play again. However, the circumstances of the last round need a bit of clarification.

Flohr led with 7.0 points, followed by Liliental with 6.5 and Alekhine with 6.0. With Flohr playing Lilienthal, he could clinch first with a draw or win, while Lilienthal would finish clear first with a win. Alekhine could not possibly finish with even a share of first, but he ground Michell down in 86 moves anyway.
