  beatgiant: White's 99th was a blunder. Does anyone see any quick win for Black after 99. Qf8 instead? I think this long game would have gone on even longer.

  kevin86: What a time for a blunder! I don't know what's worse-losing in 99 or blundering to be mated in 11 moves!!
May-12-15  A.T PhoneHome: Wow... I'd hate to be playing White here! Alekhine wins Queen.
May-13-15  Howard: A new book just came out featuring Tartakower's best games. Actually, I think it's a reprint of an older book, but this edition is in English--for the first time.
