     In the picture Gorky does not play, he watches from the side.

    i think the Alekhine picture was set up by the KGB or something, its not natural!  the chess board is set up but no pieces moved!?  come on now Alekhine wouldnt have a board set up and not  move anything!  hes wearing a coat at the dinner/chess table?!  no signs of a struggle like someone choking or stroking or having a heart attack, he looks like he fell asleep at the table...it was believed that someone placed him there!?  yea the KGB!  (sorry to offend any KGB agent reading this dont kill me please im just a stupid american kid)


    You are absolutely correct jpd303... This is an obvious case of communist sabotage and assasination cover-up... The staged photo is clearly the work of the KGB's amateur theatrics department.

    Yes, chess.comrade fleiman, you are correct -- in the actual famous photo V.I.Lenin (on left) is playing A.Bogdanov (r.) and Gorky in hat is kibitzing. And yet there is one Lenin-Gorky (0-1) game in the database -- 1908, Capri, ECO B03 Alekhine's Defense [sic].
