  nasmichael: In this case Alekhine took the f-train to Haarlem.

The pawn did a great deal of damage. Why not take with the bishop after 17.exf7+? Because the bishop and queen (c3 and d4) are lined up for destruction already. That would have been worse.

Anyone know what the time control on this game was?

  nasmichael: And by the way,
what is a Verberne/Himlvopen?

team players?
If so, what were their relative strengths to Alekhine? Were they popular players in the region?

Jul-06-04  DanielBryant: After 17.exf7 Bxf7 I think Qxg7 is a simpler followup.
Jul-14-07  sneaky pete: For all you lovers of useless facts: this is from a 12 boards clock simul in "Het Bolwerk" (The Bulwark) on November 5, 1933, where Alekhine scored +8 =4. R. Verberne and A. Hinlopen (his name is mangled here) were local club players, probably teaming up, as on some other boards, to give more players an opportunity to play Alekhine. One of the players who managed to draw was 19 year old Adrianus Dingeman De Groot.
Oct-29-15  TheFocus: From a simultaneous clock exhibition in Bussum, The Netherlands on November 5, 1933.

Alekhine scored +8=4-0.

I don't know where you get your info but this is not exactly the first mistake I see. See <sneaky pete's post>.

  beatgiant: <sneaky pete>,<TheFocus>,<Stonehenge> I think Bussum is the name of a city, while Het Bolwerk could be the name of the event hall where the simul took place.

Haarlem must be right, because the f-train does not stop at Bussum.
Oct-29-15  TheFocus: Haarlam is listed as a venue after Bussum.
