Mar-15-08  Knight13: Alekhine is careful in not playing the amateur-tempting ...f5.
Feb-12-16  MarkThornton: This was game 22: Euwe had just won 2 games in a row, including his first win with Black, to level the score at 10.5-10.5

  Sally Simpson: Karpova has a good post regarding the previous game (21 played in the Protestant Club in Ermelo) when the allegations of Alekhine drinking to excess during the match first come to the notice of the press and the public.

Alekhine vs Euwe, 1935 (kibitz #6)

This game (22) was played at the Witte Brug Hotel in The Hague. Before the game started Alekhine and Euwe toasted each other with non-alcoholic apple wine.

Then Gerard Oskam arrived with the Alekhine cats. He had taken them to a show with Alekhine's wife in Rotterdam and both cats had won a prize.

'...Alekhine himself was clearly delighted. It is obviously impossible to draw blood in these circumstances. ' (hence the short draw.)
