Recently we took a look at Karpov’s Linares 1994 performance. Today we begin with one that is in the same realm of all time great performances.

After winning the world championship from Capablanca in 1927, Alexander Alekhine spend a couple of years touring and giving simuls.

Finally, in January of 1930 he was ready to once again play in a top level event. Over 15 rounds he surrendered only two draws.

Til Next Time,
