At first I didn't understand black's Kh7; but then I realized that white would just play h4, threatening h5, and the knight would need a square. White dominates.

Dec-14-14  TheFocus: From a blindfold simul world record attempt at the Hotel Almanac in New York, New York on April 27, 1924.

Alekhine's score was +16=5-5.
