  Honza Cervenka: Btw, there is some uclarity about the gamescore of this game. This version (with 52.Qe6+) was published (with Heinz Nowarra's annotations in Deutsche Schachzeitung (November issue 1941) and from there it got elsewhere but later Max Blumich indicated in Deutsche Schachzeitung that 52.Qd6+ was played and that 52.Qe6+ was a typo. It makes sense as it is hard to imagine that AA as well as Nowarra (both in game and in post mortem analysis) would have missed simple 53.g8=Q with win.
Mar-16-08  MichAdams: I'm unclear what you mean by uclarity, but I agree that 52.Qe6+ is an obvious typo requiring correction.

  Honza Cervenka: The move 52.Qe6+ was published originally and then reproduced in some books on Alekhine as well as in some databases. But I think that Blumich knew better what really happened in the game.
