  geezerbloke: Another stunning example of AA's mastery of the centre game or Danish Gambit, his record with it in this database is incredible, I am suprised he didnt play it more often.
Nov-08-15  TheFocus: From a simultaneous clock exhibition in Gigon, Spain on November 6, 1943.

Alekhine scored +6=2-2.
