Alekhine Articles

Alekhine and his cat, "Chess"

Alekhine’s propensity to fake games in his writings is well known and I just finished reading chess historian Edward Winter's article, Mysteries at Sabadell, 1945. Held in August 1945, Sabadell was a small tournament won by Alekhine.  Two (of six pictures) gave rise to a couple of mysteries that make interesting reading. The vintage photographs of the tournament are a delight. For those who are not aware, Winter has one of the most fascinating sites on the Web. Read article.
