I pronounce it A-le-kine since that pronunciation really got under the skin of the anti-Semitic Alexander who considered it a Jewish pronunciation.
His name is Алехин in Russian. I don`t know how to transliterate the pronunciation but it would be:
A - as in but
le - as in small yet (said together)
ch - you are right about Bach (it is a bit softer) or as in loch. (not k - it is soft)
in - as in in
I read somewhere it is pronounced, 'Ool Yah Kin'
I think I'll just call him Al.
