  sleepyirv: This games reminds me of Spielmann's quote, "I can see the combinations as well as Alekhine, but I cannot get into the same positions." Around move 18, White's threats are all quite understandable, (For example, 19...Qxf6 loses to 20. Ne4) but how he got such a dominant position with two killer bishops in somewhat outside of my paygrade.

I particularly like the ending, as someone above already noted. It *seems* so simple and easy but it obviously isn't, and I don't think id have seen that final move because it's not what I like to call a Hollywood move. It's just clever. I'm goingto llook through some more of his games now because I'm not too familiar with them.

  MissScarlett: Skinner & Verhoeven date this game to Saturday, May 29th, but <The Times> report of that day reveals it was started and later adjourned in the afternoon of the previous day, following the completion of Colle vs Alekhine, 1926, the first game of the play-off.
