Dec-07-04  kostich in time: Vidmar and Alekhine seem to have been fond of Knight/rook endings
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: Unfortunately for white he cannot keep black King in his see-saw cage due to threatening discovered check: 54.Nf6+ Kf8 55.Qd8+ Kg7 56.Ne8+ Qxe8! 57.Qxe8 Bc6+ etc.
Aug-03-06  paladin at large: This is a tremendous endgame battle with a nifty trap of the white knight at the end Was 47.....Be4 the best move in the position?
Aug-03-06  Calli: Little known is that this game is from a casual match between AA and Dr V. AA won but only by 5 games to 4.
Jul-26-11  brankat: At the time Alekhine resided in Paris, while Dr.Vidmar was visiting.

I believe the match took place in Palais Royal. The story goes that the word spread, and the place was full of spectators, with an additional crowd standing outside of the coffee-house watching through the windows.

Dec-20-14  TheFocus: One of a series of nine off-hand games contested by the players.

Alekhine won 5. Vidmar won 4.
