  Phony Benoni: Possible database error: in the three volume set of Alekhine's games edited by Khalifman, the ending of this game is given as 35...Rxg3 36.hxg3 Rf8 37.Bg4 1-0

That certainly makes more sense than 35...Rf8 36.Rxa3, but is it correct?

Oct-03-06  Maatalkko: Yes, it is correct. <My Best Games of Chess> by Alekhine, which I just bought, has that in there as the score for the game. The <> database should be changed.
Mar-01-08  MichAdams: No, the original was correct. Alekhine airbrushed Black's blunder from his book.
Jul-02-15  Robert Samuels: The 2013 edition of Alekhine's games (Milford, CT: Russell Enterprises) has the ending as <MichAdams> indicates, with 35.Ke4 Rf8 36.Rxa3 1-0.
May-10-17  User not found: I've been through a lot of White's games and I wouldn't say this is worthy of being in a book about his best games! Alekhine is a bit like Fischer to <me personally> in the way he plays for the win, tactically excellent and Hollywood moves but his opponent here played average as opposed to Alekhine playing like he could.. IMO.

Re8, Rg8 and probably even Rf8 equals it up.
