  MissScarlett: <Charles Sullivan (Davis, CA, USA) refers to two positions from games in Alexander Alekhine’s Chess Games, 1902-1946 by Leonard M. Skinner and Robert G.P. Verhoeven (Jefferson, 1998):

a) Alekhine v Turover, Bradley Beach, 3 June 1929 (pages 359-360): dia

Play is said to have continued 21 Qxe5 Qxe5, and our correspondent asks if both players overlooked 21...Qxf2+, which wins for Black.

The book gave two sources for this game: the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 13 June 1929, page 32, and the American Chess Bulletin, July-August 1929, pages 130-131. We do not have the newspaper, but according to the game-score in the Bulletin Black’s queen stood at h5, not f5 (18...Qa5-h5).>

The relevant <BDE> agrees that 18...Qh5 was played. Correction submitted.

Thus <Calli> needs to remove this from his collection <Alekhine was sunk!>.
